Welcome to the Susegad Book Club

Don’t just read in Goa. Discuss!!!

No matter if you are new to Goa or lived here all your life, if you love reading, books and meeting other bookworms, you just found your new home!

The Susegad Book Club started on February 1st, 2020 and meets twice every month: on the first Saturday and the Sunday two weeks later thus making sure you find a slot no matter your work and family commitments.

The Club’s current membership is as diverse as Goa’s population: ladies and gents, Indians and expats, everyone from college students to mothers, Hindus, Muslims and atheists…

Everybody is welcome! What connects them is their shared love for everything books.

Everybody can offer suggestions regarding what the Club should read next. The overall focus is on fiction and a balance between Indian and foreign authors. Those who have attended at least one meeting get to vote on the final books that will be read.

So far SBC has read a variety of books including Indian new-comer Amrita Mahale with “Milk Teeth” and international bestseller “My Sister, the Serial Killer” by Oyinkan Braithwaite. The Club even had the pleasure to have author Srishti Chaudhary join the hangout of her book “Once upon a Curfew” for a Q&A session.
