HIAS Book and Film Club: Exit West

The HIAS Book and Film Club can be either a do-it-yourself or HIAS-led experience. This event is for those who wish to participate in a HIAS-facilitated session. 

For those who wish to take part in a guided experience, HIAS will offer a guided book or film discussion (we will switch between a book and a film from month to month) with a staff member. Guided discussions will take place in the middle of each month, at which time the book or film for the next month will also be announced. Discussion groups will be capped at 20 participants.
