In this fast-paced and demanding world we live in, it’s becoming difficult to find the time to read and reflect. The rich world of literature is too valuable for us to let it pass by as it can provide us with an escape from our daily routine and broaden our perceptions and understanding of the world. It is for this very reason that the Diwan Book Club was created, in partnership with Starbucks. The main goal of this book club is to provide a platform for people who share a love of literature to come together and discuss their favorite book in a comfortable and respectful atmosphere. We hope to make reading an essential part of the lifestyle in Kuwait! If you love reading and would like to join the Diwan Book Club, please email: email@example.com or visit their website HERE.
