Join the monthly meeting of Sistercity Bookclub for a discussion of Strange People by Artem Chapeye, a humorous look into human nature. Sistercity Bookclub has been meeting monthly since 2015. Its initial focus was on reading Chicago-themed nonfiction and fiction, but as time passed, more contemporary American and Ukrainian literature was introduced to the itinerary. The meetings are open to new members and are led in the Ukrainian language only. Please contact Maria at +7733192276 if you wish to participate. 🇺🇦 Запрошуємо всіх охочих на щомісячну зустріч книжкового клубу Sistercity Bookclub для обговорення роману «Дивні люди» Артема Чапая. Книжковий клуб Sistercity Bookclub збирається щомісяця з 2015 року. Спочатку він зосереджувався на документальній та художній літературі на тему Чикаго, але з часом у програмі з'явилася сучасна американська та українська література. Зустрічі відкриті для нових учасників і ведуться лише українською мовою. Будь ласка, зв’яжіться з Марією за номером +7733192276, якщо бажаєте взяти участь.
