Book Reading Club

Our book club activity takes place on the fourth Friday of every month! The club is for exchanging individual views on pre-selected books and discuss the various ways of "reading" a book. The group meets every month at British Council Library, Yangon and members of the club have to read the book selected for the month. What's more? The sessions will be facilitated by a British Council Library staff, who possesses a deep love for reading books.

Our upcoming reading club meeting will be held on 29 September 2023 from 3:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. at British Council, Library, Yangon.

Discussion will be based on “My name is Why by Lemn Sissay."

This story is true.

My Name Is Why is a true story about growing up in care and fighting to succeed despite the cruelty and failures of the care system.
