What is ShuChong?

ShuChong (meaning Bookworm in Chinese!) is Ricefield’s new, free monthly Book Club to read books by Chinese authors or books with Chinese cultural themes.

  • Read our club-selected Chinese themed book each month
  • Share opinions over a nice cup of tea in a relaxed atmosphere
  • Be part of a circle of like-minded, friendly people
  • Our bookworm HQ: Hillhead Library
