School Bookclubs and Book Reviews

If you don’t know where to start with contemporary Chinese writing, get some inspiration from some of our excellent school book reviewers below. Why not try writing your own review (on any Chinese literary work you have read in English translation)? You might even win a prize!

If several of you from a single school are interested in reading translated literature, then get in touch with us to discuss setting up a bookclub in your school. We work with publishers to provide schools with some free copies of selected suitable titles which can be discussed in bookclubs in return for reviews. We encourage pupils, or teachers, to write reviews of the books they have read and we will publish them on our website. For some top tips about how to set up a bookclub in your school, from an experienced teacher, read our blog interview with Theresa Munford, an experienced teacher who has set one up in her school, with some truly fantastic results.
