Chicago, United States of America

Beremo slovensko is a book club for expats and foreigners who live in the USA and would like to maintain contact with the Slovenian language. The club presents occasional virtual meetings, where we will socialize over good books and lively debates.

The meetings will be held with the support of the National University Library, which provides free membership and access to the electronic library www.biblos.si to emigrants and foreigners.

Feri Lainšček: Kurji Pastir
At the second meeting of the Beremo Slovensko book club, which will take place on Friday, January 13, 2023, at 7:00 p.m. Central Standard Time (Chicago), we will review Feri Lainšček’s novel Kurji pastir, in which the writer brings out long-suppressed memories of his childhood and writes about the events from his experience, which he witnessed in some unfathomable way, such as his parents deciding what to name him, how his birth went, or what problems his mother had with initial breastfeeding.
