Introduction

What the book club is a book club based in Pokhara that aims to develop a reading culture among youths in Pokhara. We conduct book discussions on different books (English and Nepali books on alternate months). The club was formed on Baisakh 2074 and we meet on the first Saturday each month.

 

With the motto of ‘Read and Breed’, we have initiated some other ideas too. Book is Cool is spreading the message that books are intriguing and cool and reading them is cooler among the school students. Book for all provides a platform for readers of all age groups and backgrounds in our monthly book discussions by sharing and learning each other’s experiences and viewpoints. We believe that books create potential impact to transform existing belief of each and every individuals residing in the society by developing their ability to know what is within them and what changes they can make for people among them and bring paradigm shift in the performance of people in diverse area. Apart from book monthly book discussions, we do occasional movie screenings, themed discussions, reach the school students through interactive sessions in the school itself and provide a platform for interaction between readers and writers by inviting writers in our discussions. We have also hosted a few poetry events hosting poets from as far as Darjeeling and United States.
