The Cosmos Book Club is reading this recently published story collection (and top community pick!) for our second gathering. The anthology contains fifteen reimagined short stories of East and South Asia folklore and ranges from fantasy to science fiction to romance. The book is compiled by We Need Diverse Books's Ellen Oh and Elsie Chapman. We will engage in thoughtful small group discussions around several of these stories and how it relates to us as multidimensional women.
We are also proud to welcome authors Preeti Chhibber of "Girls Who Twirl and Other Dangers" and Sona Charaipotra of "Still Star-Crossed", who will join us for a Q&A session following our discussion.
The book can be found at a variety of physical bookstores and online, including Barnes & Noble, Strand Books, McNally Jackson, & Amazon. We encourage you to support an independent, local bookstore if you are able to purchase.
The Cosmos Book Club is a monthly gathering of self-identifying women of Asian descent to read, discuss, and support Asian diaspora literature by women authors.
We are currently piloting in New York, but email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you're interested in hosting a book club to your city!
