We’ve got terrific news: This academic year UNED Nou Barris is going to be running an English book club!

Welcome to the brand new UNED English Book Club, a space for books, meetings and discussions, discoveries and hopefully fun and enjoyment all in the mix!

All sessions will be free and everyone will be welcome. Come, learn a bunch of new things and practise your English with us while enjoying literature and having fun.

Recommended Level of English C1 (advanced). However, if your level is lower, you are also welcome to join us and participate!

Our new Book Club will kick off with Shotgun Lovesongs, by Nickolas Butler (2014).


Because it is a contemporary American novel, beautifully written and that will take you to the heart of mesmerizing Wisconsin and close to the hearts of the four protagonists.

The plot

This is the story of five childhood friends living in—and out of—rural Little Wing, Wisconsin. Henry, Lee, Kip and Ronny grew up together in rural Wisconsin. Friends since childhood, their lives all began the same way, but have since taken different paths.This is a novel about the things that matter – love and loyalty, the power of music and the beauty of nature – told in a uniquely beautiful, warm-hearted and profound way and exploring the age-old question of whether we can ever truly come home.
