As the sun sets over the city, the breeze from the Tagus rustles the pages of your book! JÁ International Reading Nights are monthly events that are free to members: join us to discover novelists and short story writers, their life story and their writing style, and read a selection of their short stories and poetry. A discussion over a glass of wine caps off the evening…

If you’re intrigued by literature, authors and styles, reading nights are a fantastic way to sample new tastes! From Nabokov, Chekhov and Hemingway to living writers like Elena Ferrante, there’s something here for everybody so you can find your new favourites!

Sign up now for our inaugural Reading Nights.
