Book Club

Each month we choose an author to feature as our book club Author of the Month. Browse the menu on the left hand side of this page to find out more about each month’s featured author, and read some of their work, in Chinese and/or in English translation. You can also read our blog for interviews with authors, translators and publishers. We regularly welcome authors and translators to Leeds, to read and discuss their work, so keep an eye on our Events page for what’s happening next!

我们每月都推选一位作者做读书俱乐部的月度作家。请浏览本页面左手边菜单,发现关于每月特色作家的更多信息,阅读他们的中文作品或作品的英译本。您也可以阅读我们的博客,了解对作家、译者和出版商的采访报道。我们会定期邀请作家和译者来利兹阅读讨论他们的作品,所以一定要密切关注我们的活动网页,了解接下来要发生的事情。

If you’d like to browse all our short stories, but don’t know where to start, check out these flash reviews by our Reading Chinese Book Reviewers of their favourites of our monthly features to date. #goodchinesereads
