Our Shared Shelf is an online feminist book club, founded by UN Women Goodwill Ambassador Emma Watson. Every month Emma picks a book, and whoever wants to join in can read along.

This month we will be discussing April’s choice, How To Be A Woman by Caitlin Moran, and May’s choice (as yet unknown).

You are very welcome to join us!

John Adams Institute

In continuation of its mission to support American culture in Amsterdam, the John Adams Institute is launching its very own book club. The first meeting takes place on May 11, and we now warmly welcome all book lovers to our circle, members and non-members alike! Coordinator of the John Adams Book Club is Glen Kendall, an Amsterdam-based American with a life-long passion for books.

Registration is now open, and members are expected to commit for one year. There is an annual registration fee of €20 for students and €37.50 for others, to pay for incidental costs including refreshments at the meetings. No fee will be collected for the first two meetings in May and June, but will be payable at the meeting in September. For full details, and to join, send an email to Glen at

Book Club Members receive a 10% discount on any books purchased at Athenaeum on the evening of the Book Club meeting.
