ALI Book Club

The ALI Book Club is a free program that aims to help international students practice their English reading and conversation skills. These informal hour-long groups are much like our Conversation Groups; they will be led by native English-speaking USC students, they are first come first served and capped at 5 students per session. The only difference is that all participants will be expected to read the required text before joining a Book Club session.

This winter, we will read “Exit West” by Mohsin Hamid. This celebrated and bestselling novel tells of a young couple who engage in a love affair amid their city’s civil war. Having to flee, they embark on an adventure through doors that whisk them away into alien lands.

We will read and discuss Exit West in three one-hour sessions this December. If you’d like to join, get your copy and start reading! 🙂 There are many places in which you can get the book (or ebook), including Amazon. One lucky student can even snag the one copy at the USC Library!
