The Champaca Book Club & Book Community

Our advanced plans to the Champaca Book Subscription includes access to the Book Club & Book Community.

What is the Champaca Book Community?

The  Champaca Book Community is a forum where you can have sustained conversations with other readers about the book of the month, on a dedicated Slack channel. Stay in touch with book-lovers throughout the month, discussing what you think of the books you're reading!

The Champaca Book Club

The Champaca Book Club will have monthly meetings anchored by Somak Ghoshal, a cultural and literary critic. Subscribers to the advanced plans will receive exclusive access to these meetings. Every month, the first thirty sign-ups will be part of a book club meeting to discuss Champaca’s book of the month. 

For the first season of the Book Club, we will be reading some of the finest literary fiction and non-fiction in translation from across India and the world. The discussions will cover the historical and contemporary contexts of these books, while focusing on individual responses, takeaways, likes and dislikes.

We will also host events around the book of the month with authors, translators, or publishers. Advanced plans give you free access to these. 

We are excited to create a space where readers can come together and form a community, and to bring these books alive in interesting ways and enhance your reading through conversations.
