Our Community

Parea is a venue for the growth of the human spirit, the development of friendships and the exploration of ideas to enrich our quality of life.

Stories, and the people behind them, have the power to create culture, change behavior, leave lasting legacies, and inspire others around the world. When you buy a Parea book, you’re joining a community of readers who deeply believe in the transformative power of storytelling. You’ll have a chance to meet people who are reading the same book as you at the same time, to connect and bond with others over new ideas and concepts that emerge from your reading experience. You’ll gain access to our Reader Retreats in Marrakech, our Learn | Feel | Escape event series, and author-led discussions. You’ll also weigh in on future book acquisitions, unfinished manuscripts, and community events. Welcome to Parea.

Upcoming Events

Reading Retreat | Marrakech

Imagine five days dedicated to people who love to read, who want to have a transformative solo travel experience but with the chance to meet and engage with other readers. Imagine reading the same thing as someone else, at the same time, and being able to talk about it. Imagine being so inspired by the prose and the location that you, too, are prompted to create.

Our first Reading Retreat itinerary is inspired by The Hours Before Dusk. Join author Jenna Matecki on a visit to a sustainable farm run by a globally renowned ethnobotanist and pick fresh produce for a future meal, take a day trip to a sculpture garden in the Atlas Mountains, indulge in a creativity-focused tour of the historical Medina. Spend hours reading by the tranquil pools on Jnane Tamsna’s luxurious property, and join fellow retreat members for candlelit dinners in the gardens. Email RSVP@pareabooks.com to secure your spot.
