Q & A with Alexander McNabb on January 18th, 2014
We've McNabbed the Dubai-based author & communication consultant, Alexander McNabb for a Q&A session in January. Why? He's got a book out - Shemlan: A Deadly Tragedy and he's agreed to take questions and provide answers about Shemlan once we read it. So, please make sure to finish the novel before our January 18th meeting; that way we can take full advantage of Alexander McNabb's presence.
You can buy copies on Amazon (Kindle) or order print copies from Book Depository. We have several print copies on order & they will be distributed during our December meeting. Tweet us or email us if you want a copy reserved for you. The price is AED60.
Looking for something to read?
TwitBookClub will help you decide what's worth your time and what's not. Our goal is to wake up the book worm in you. We're not here to force you to read books you don't want to; but the community is offering up lots of choices for your consideration every month. The choice of what to read (regardless of our four monthly selections) is entirely up to each individual. We don't always discuss just the recent bestsellers, our choices are selected by the community, and we follow the "Anything Goes" road when it comes to discussing specific books.
Established December 14, 2009 @TwitBookClub, a UAE-based bookworm community that meets on the 3rd Saturday of every month from 1100 up until about 1400 at Coffeol Emaar Boulevard (near Dubai Mall, location details here). We also live tweet our meetings, so those who cannot make it, are able to join our discussions via Twitter regardless of where you are or when we had our meetings. We start with a bit of breakfast first, then move onto the discussions about books and related topics/themes.
Joining the group is very easy, all you have to do is show up to one of our monthly meetings or join our live discussion via Twitter. It doesn't matter whether you've read our current choices or not. We're not the kind of book club that forces you to read, we'd rather you enjoy the reading experience. We're here purely to help you decide what it is you want to read.
Huge THANK YOU goes out to WildPeeta for their continuous support of TwitBookClub. Also, big thank you to all our members and those who have already gotten involved with TwitBookClub and those who come to our meetings and join our discussions on a monthly basis.
TwitBookClub is operated by the community. It's all about what YOU want to do, so if you have any ideas or want to get involved with us and help us out (organizing, planning events, etc), e-mail us.
When? Every 3rd Saturday of the month
Where? Coffeol Emaar Boulevard, Boulevard Plaza, Tower 1, Ground Floor (Dubai, UAE).
