We're sometimes a bit lazy with updating the website. If the "next meeting" is in the past we'll still probably be meeting on Thursday at Wiggly Jiggly's (欧也 Cafe), Dongzhimen - check the WeChat group for updates.
The Beijing Science Fiction Reading Group is a friendly group of science fiction fans in Beijing, China. We meet most Thursdays at 8pm to discuss a different English-language science fiction story each week - usually in Wiggly Jiggly's (欧也Cafe) in Dongzhimen (close to Exit D of Dongzhimen subway station). We previously used to meet at The Bookworm before it closed. Meetings are free and informal, and usually discuss short fiction so that everyone has the chance to read the story before the meeting.

We welcome all new members, whether you're an established science fiction fan or new to the genre. If you want to join our WeChat group, please add Kevin on WeChat and ask him to add you - unfortunately we're now too big to join directly by QR code.
