In Other Words Book Club reads The Girl Who Played Go > JUNE 15


ABOUT THE IN OTHER WORDS BOOK CLUB
The members of the European Union National Institutes for Culture (EUNIC) in Toronto are pleased to be hosting their 2016 European Book Club Series, “In Other Words” at Type Books.

In Other Words will focus will on authors who have migrated and adapted to a different country, writing in the new languages of their adopted homes. The goal is to introduce Canadians to European books and authors by bridging cultures and allowing readers to discover contemporary European authors and their works. 

EUNIC is the network of the European cultural relations institutes in Toronto and is formed by Alliance Française and the Consulate general of France, Camões Toronto, Italian Cultural Institute and Goethe-Institut Toronto. 

ABOUT  THE GIRL WHO PLAYED GO BY  SHAN SA
In a remote Manchurian town in the 1930s, a sixteen-year-old girl is more concerned with intimations of her own womanhood than the escalating hostilities between her countrymen and their Japanese occupiers. While still a schoolgirl in braids, she takes her first lover, a dissident student. The more she understands of adult life, however, the more disdainful she is of its deceptions, and the more she loses herself in her one true passion: the ancient game of go.
