Dolls Book Club: Factory Girls
Title:
Dolls Book Club: Factory Girls
When:
28.09.2010 19.30 h
Where:
Shanghai
Category:
Girls Only

Description

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.  (Copyright © Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc.

The next book is:

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.

Hi
I have almost finished the book. 50 pages left.
I hope this is not too late to register.
See you
Elise


Wow, this is shaping up to be the biggest book club in ages :)

Elise - no problem with registering now...
I've booked a table for 20 and hopefully they'll be able to get us on one long table but, if not, they're going to try and get us as close together as possible.
See you all tomorrow night,
Jenny

Quoting Beachlover:
Hi Jenny and fellow Dolls,

Just discovered this site, would love to join the Book Club! May have to give September a miss as I doubt I can finish the book in time hehehe! But looking forward to October's event! Cheers


Hey Beachlover,
Dont feel that you have to have read the book to come along. Most of the time I haven't even read the book, I just go along because its good company, good food and a good chat about books and stories in general :)

I'll miss the Sept book club because of the holidays, but I'm already reading "Girl with the Dragon Tattoo". Looking forward to seeing you all in October.

Hi Girls,

I've made a booking at Amokka Cafe on Anfu Lu for the book club, under the name of Jenny. I'm just waiting to get the venue onto the Dolls Directory and then I'll add it onto this page.

Please remember to cancel your registration if you can't make it so I can give the cafe accurate numbers nearer the time (At the moment, I've booked for 20!).
Thanks,
Jenny
