a Book

         a Month

practice English 

through literature


This is me reading Nemesis, a novel by Philip Roth which is part of one of the Advanced Group's reading list.

I am an English and Literature professor based in Curitiba, Brazil.

I hold a PhD in Literature and Animal Studies from the Federal University of Paraná (UFPR) and a Master's degree in Comparative Literature from the University of Sheffield, Universidade Nova de Lisboa and Universidad Santiago de Compostela (Erasmus Mundus Alumni).

Reading and discussing literature is both part of my profession and some of my greatest passions!

That is what moved me to create A Book a Month!

Hello fellow readers,

I'm Ana Carolina Torquato and here's a little bit about me.

What students say about their

experience in A Book a Month 

My major necessity was to keep practising English, but I found so much more in the reading group! Ana is wonderful!! She makes a special book selection and prepares a discussion that brings all her knowledge about English, literature, arts, and culture. The meetings are always exciting and fun! This group increased my reading habits and put me in contact with interesting people.
