Join the Book Club and be part of the JFT Library community. Share a book of your choice with other library users and get recommendations for future reads!

 

Thursday, April 8, 2021 [3:00 pm – 4:00 pm]

Books may be from any section of the JFT library – both fiction and non-fiction.
*Books must be written originally in English or translated from original Japanese to English or French*

 

For the book club, you may:

  • Bring the book you currently have on loan and share what you’ve been reading!
  • Talk about the most memorable book you’ve read from JFT Library’s collection. If you still remember it, odds are, the book was just that good!
  • Be creative with getting your reading materials! Check out our Inventorial and Thematic Book Lists to get an idea for your next book. You can search whether the book is part of JFT’s collection through our online catalogue.

 

The JFT Library Book Club will be conducted through Zoom. Please email the library at library@jftor.org to reserve your seat.

Prior to the meeting, an email will be sent to you with a website link and log-in password to enter the online Zoom meeting.
Please be aware that space may be limited.

If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact us via email.

Thank you for participating!
