September's book club has been brought forward a couple of days due to the National Day holiday and the thought that lots of people might be planning a trip away from the Thursday night (30th Sept).
At this month's meeting we'll be discussing "Factory Girls" by Leslie T. Chang.
Chang, a former Beijing correspondent for the Wall Street Journal, explores the urban realities and rural roots of a community, until now, as unacknowledged as it is massive—China's 130 million workers whose exodus from villages to factory and city life is the largest migration in history. Chang spent three years following the successes, hardships and heartbreaks of two teenage girls, Min and Chunming, migrants working the assembly lines in Dongguan, one of the new factory cities that have sprung up all over China.

October: The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larrson
Once I have an idea of numbers of people coming, I'll book a venue so please register ASAP! Thanks.
This cafe/restaurant/wine bar serves light American fare such as sauteed fish and pasta dishes. Upstairs the ambiance is cozy, with an inviting fireplace as the centerpiece and soft couches to lounge on if you're there for a beverage. SmartShanghai
