Shelf Indulgence – Book Club


In this club, different types of texts such as novels, non-fiction books and short story collections are read and discussed together.

The aim is to foster a lifelong relationship with independent reading and to facilitate discussions about literature.

Shelf Indulgence aims to help students learn about new literary works, but also to gain confidence in speaking and listening to the ideas of others.
