About the Programme/Event: 

The Forty Rules of Love by Elif Shafak is a captivating novel that weaves together the stories of Rumi, the legendary Sufi poet, and a modern woman named Ella Rubinstein. Through the historical narrative of Rumi's transformative relationship with his mentor Shams of Tabriz and Ella's contemporary journey of self-discovery, the novel explores profound themes of love, spirituality, and personal awakening. Shams's forty rules on love serve as a guiding light, illuminating the characters' quests for deeper understanding and connection. Shafak's lyrical prose and rich characterisation make for a compelling exploration of love in its myriad forms, leaving readers inspired to reflect on their own relationships and spiritual journeys.


About Sama-Sama Book Club

Whether you're an avid reader or just looking to read more, Sama-Sama Book Club is a welcoming space for all. Explore new worlds, engage in thought-provoking discussions, and connect with other bookworms who appreciate reading as much as you do. We hope for participants to embark on a literary journey that transcends borders by reading global titles while remaining grounded in a local perspective. The heart of our book club lies in our interactive and participative discussions. Every member has a voice, and we encourage everyone to share their thoughts, questions, and opinions. It's not just about reading the book; it's about engaging in lively conversations that help us broaden our perspectives. 

How it works:   

  1. A book from off our shores is picked.
  2. We come together to talk about it from our perspectives based in Singapore or the region.

What you'll take away from each session: 

💡 A deeper understanding of the book and the issues it raises 

💡 Seeing global stories from a local perspective 

💡 Connections with fellow book lovers who share your interests

💡 An enjoyable experience of discussing literature and making new friends

We meet quarterly, dedicating each session to a single book. Stay tuned and follow our Instagram page for the book we'll read for the year! Ready to embark on a literary journey? Register for the session now!
