Students, faculty and alumni of the prestigious St. Stephen’s College in University of Delhi can now come together to talk books – under the banner of the Kunzum St. Stephen’s Book Club. An initiative of the institution’s students, this community promises to promote reading as their contribution of society’s cultural evolvement.
The club will cover books across genres to appeal to most readers; those interested in specific kind of books will be encouraged to set up sub-groups and hold additional interactions.
Format of Interactions
Members would be required to come prepared with any one book that had made an impression on them. They would be allowed to speak for exactly two minutes about it, followed by questions from others present. The moderator will ensure all discussion is focused and brief so everyone gets the chance to talk about books they have read.
The club would meet once a month in person at a Kunzum outlet convenient to them. The location, date and time would be set up by moderators in consultation with other members.
Meet Authors, Editors, Designers & Other Creators
Kunzum is frequented regularly by those who create wonderful books and art for you. They will be invited to make special appearances when they can at book club meets. Members will also be offered priority access when we host events (like book launches, lit fests etc.) open to a wider audience.
Membership and How to Join
Volunteers from amongst the membership will be entrusted to moderate the sessions, and these may change from time to time.
Staying in Touch
A WhatsApp group has been set up for the group. Only admins are able to post on it. Members will thus receive only limited and relevant updates. Those wishing to send a message to all other members can contact the admin who will post further if suitable.

More to the Book Club
The club need not limit itself to meeting just to discuss books. Plan other fun stuff once you know each other better!
