Join the free book club organized by VOX Delft, SG, Hesiodos magazine, and the TUD Library!

Over the next few weeks (leading up to the 26th of April), we’ll be reading All Men Are Mortal, a metaphysical novel by Simone de Beauvoir. Written in 1946, it follows the life of a protagonist who is immortal. The book deals with themes like existentialism, authenticity, meaning, and personal freedom. Join us on Tuesday, April 26th, in an informal conversation about the book’s themes together.
