You don't need to read Chinese! Come along and discuss books by Chinese authors translated into English and books about or set in China by foreign writers. Fiction, non-fiction, history, politics, old books, the latest books...

I would like to have two meetings every month - one meetup to discuss a non-fiction work and another to talk about a novel.
