About the Event

Dialogues with Books: Short Stories

The world outside is scary right now. However, for people like you and me, those who love the written word, every story provides a brief respite from the constant bombardment of bad news and hopelessness. 

The show must go on; our busy lives remain busy still. We might not be able to make time for a full-length novel or find ourselves in the right headspace to immerse ourselves in a 400-page story. And so we turn to short stories - stories that are little but say so much, stories we can carry in our pockets. 

"The great thing about a short story is that it doesn’t have to trawl through someone’s whole life; it can come in glancingly from the side."

~Emma Donoghue


Let's meet (online) in May and talk about the short stories that came "glancingly from the side" into our lives. For 2 hours, immerse yourself in an enriching discussion with fellow book-lovers of our community. 

Hope to see you there.

About the Meet-up

We are a group of book-lovers who meet (online, currently) once every month to talk about what we love the most - books! For this month's meet-up, the theme is 'Books I Keep Coming Back To'. Let's talk about those books that are closest to our hearts and the ones that we keep rereading but never tire of. Keep a cup of coffee or tea ready for the session!


About the Community

Meet a group of people who are drawn to books like fireflies to a flame. We love books. We love talking about books. If you do too, join our community! 

We have a WhatsApp group where we host weekly book discussions. We also meet (online) once every month for a special meet-up.
