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 and about opening up publishing to all readers.

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

2018 Reading Groups

In 2015-2017, due to expanding our book production and lack of time, we had to take a short break from the groups. However, thanks to Jan Michalski Foundation funding, new ones are coming! Currently, Portuguese, Urdu and Francophone African literature groups are in the pipeline.

Sign up to our newsletter to hear about all future groups’ meetings. 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
