NCTA International Book Club

March 5 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm


***Our next book club meetup will be held on March, 5th 2022 at 2:00pm. It will be held on Zoom. We will review the Omicron situation before the event and decide if we can hold it in-person***


The International Book Club is a book club for NCTA members and non-members who want to join our NCTA community.

If you love to read translated books, either in English or in your native language, join us!


We’ll read and discuss fiction books that have been translated in English and other languages. We will read one book approximately every two months. We started in January. The planned schedule is this one:  January/February, March/April, May/June, July/August, September/October… We’ll meet once every two months (in person or on Zoom) to discuss the book!  Feel free to organize a meetup in your area!

You can choose to read the selected books in the original language or in any available translation. Discussions will focus on traditional book club themes as well as aspects of translation that arise.

We know that free time is precious and rare, so feel free to join us whenever you can! The more the merrier!!!

Please sign up below, it doesn’t commit you to anything, except to receiving book club information 😉

About our next book:

Our next book will be Amanda Gorman’s The Hill We Climb, the poem she delivered during President Biden’s inauguration. We have all been amazed by this young poetess and her dazzling and profound words. Her piece, titled “The Hill We Climb,” called for unity and justice, through both reckoning with the nation’s past and looking toward its future. Her poem has been translated in many languages and I encourage everyone to read the translation in your preferred language together with the original text in English. We will discuss its content, examine some specific passages in English and other languages, and attempt to answer the following question: can a translator translate any text?

You can find the transcription of the English text here

Hoping to see many of you!
