BNJC Book Club: Call Me By Your Name

17 January, 2023 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Join our BNJC Book Club for a stimulating discussion around our January book choice, ‘Call Me By Your Name’

Join us to discuss books!

In January, the BNJC Book Club will be reading Call Me Your Name by Andre Aciman. Winner of a Lamda Literary Award, the novel has received international acclaim and in 2017 it was adapted into a film, receiving multiple Oscar nominations.

About Call Me By Your Name:

Set in 1980s Italy and spanning the 20 years that follow, this beautiful coming-of-age novel chronicles a budding romance between two Jews – Elio and Oliver. The gorgeous writing style drags the reader in and reminds them of the feelings of young, all-consuming love, fascination, and adoration that borders on obsession. With a distinct theme of Jewishness running through it, the novel has been highly praised by the Jewish Book Council.

About our book club

Our book club is a chance to get together to discuss books with some connection to Jewish culture. Our books will include both fiction and non-fiction, contemporary and classic books by British and international authors, and established and aspiring authors. Books will be chosen by a vote and we encourage everyone to make suggestions.

Please register to let us know you’ll be coming. All are welcome!
