GE Book Club 

During the Book Club sessions, students will engage in direct dialogues with the books, the hosts, and one another in a friendly and relaxed environment, the GE Gatherland. The dialogues will also go beyond GE Gatherland – you will share your thoughts on the dedicated online platform where enthusiastic discussion will continue. Your beliefs and values may be challenged. You may leave with many questions that do not have any final or definite answers. But definitely, you will learn that there is so much more to a book than just the reading of it.
