Borderless Book Club - The Book of Jakarta

11 Mar 2021 - 8.00PM

with translator Khairani Barokka

In response to the Covid-19 crisis and the lockdown order, Peirene created the Borderless Book Club in collaboration with several other small presses in March 2020. Initially planned for a six-week run, we are now into our fourth programme with the Winter 2021 Programme beginning in January.


Meetings are held on Thursday evenings at 8pm UK time, via Zoom. Participation is free and meetings can be accessed from anywhere in the world. We exclusively discuss translated literature and invite translators and authors to join us to discuss their work. Hosted by Maddie Rogers, Peirene’s publishing assistant, each meeting features a different press presenting their book.

Sign up to the mailing list here to receive Zoom invitations and discussion questions ahead of meetings.

Previous sessions are available to listen to as a podcast here.
