Reading Groups

And Other Stories reading groups have been instrumental in unearthing a number of great books to publish in English. Each reading group has thrown up one or two books we are seriously considering as titles we could publish. Call it a book club or reading group – it’s about the same thing: the pleasure of a good talk about some hotly tipped books.

This Publishing Perspectives article from 2012 provides a great overview of what our reading groups are about.

2014 Reading Groups

Contribute to one of our current / upcoming reading groups:

We are keen to run more groups in 2014. Ideas are already coming in for Dutch, French, Swedish (or pan-Scandinavian?), Portuguese and German groups. So if you would like to be  a reader in a group – or would like to suggest an as yet untranslated contemporary work of fiction – email us at

Extracts in English are available on this website’s reading group pages where possible – see the relevant author’s page. Add your comments to the author pages and we’d love to see you at our meet-ups. Thanks to your discussion online and in person, new books will make it into English.
