Join the Democrats Abroad Berlin Book Club
The Berlin book club aims to provide a shared reading experience and relaxed discussion space for Democrats Abroad members. We meet the fourth Thursday of the month.
You don’t have to have finished the book entirely to attend. Each month we have attendees who only had time to make it partway through and we welcome them!
