Read on for GEEO’s suggestions on books to read before you travel to Central Europe. Our book club is a way for teachers and other participants to learn through literature about the places they will be traveling. Reading about Europe is the next best thing to being there!

Reading fiction or nonfiction based on a country gives travelers the context needed to have deeper, richer experiences abroad. It is completely up to the participant whether they choose to read them, as the GEEO book club is not a required element of our programs. We hope our participants will enjoy the books we have selected and they will enhance their experience.

You should be able to find most of our selections through the links below and in your local library system as well. Do you have any feedback on our selections or suggestions for additions? Contact us and let us know!
