In Translation Book Club

The In Translation Book Club reads and discusses translated books from around the globe. All are welcome and no purchase is required.

The In Translation Book Club meets on the third Tuesday of each month at Third Place Books Seward Park (5041 Wilson Ave S). The bookstore is on a street-level floor with wide aisles and no stairs to meeting area or to the wheelchair accessible restroom. There are two accessible parking spaces available near th20e front entrance (permit required). We ask that all attendees help make this a fragrance-free zone by not wearing scented products to the meeting.
