FOM Book Groups meet monthly and focus on books with Asian subjects, both fiction and non-fiction. The aim of our groups is to get to know the region better through its writing, to discuss our views and to get to know fellow members with similar interests in a smaller group setting.

We have very diverse groups coming from different countries and of all ages. Non-native English speakers should not consider language a barrier. Though the topics are Asian, the viewpoints are global as members are from all over the world, and our discussions are always very lively! We tend to have the meetings at our homes, taking turns to host and review the books.

We would like to invite you to contact us if you are interested in joining and we will do our best to find you a spot in a suitable group. You can either contact me Preeti Khandelwal, the coordinator, or the group leaders directly to see if they have a place. The leaders are:
