Murakami Reading Group

Book Oblivion was founded with the idea that we would rescue books from oblivion and return them to the center of culture and conversation. One of the ways we do that is through our reading groups. Our Murakami Reading Group supplements our course series and offers participants a way to systematically read through Haruki Murakami's entire body of work.

Our Murakami Reading Group reads an average of 50 pages from a Murakami novel or one short story per week. Each reading includes an introduction to the work and explores some of the theories or philosophies mentioned. Additionally, there is a carefully curated list of further reading and resources included for each work. This list includes other works written by the selected author, secondary books, and online articles related to the author or subject. If applicable, there will also be a list of recommended fiction that directly or indirectly explores each story's ideas.

We spend one month reading and engaging with different stories or a single novel and meet together live in an online video chat on the last weekend of the month. Participants are also invited to join our private Facebook group to engage with the material and one another throughout the month.
