The thursday book club by gentle books is an event series spotlighting reading communities across Hong Kong, celebrating a range of genres, conversations, and books. Every edition of the book club is unique — this evolving format invites guest hosts to innovate new formats and activate literature.

In this edition, our guest co-host is Lagom, led by Sau Wai Chan and Bauhinia Lee. The best kinds of conversations and connections are when it's not too much, not too little. We strive to curate the perfect balance of social and introspection, amongst friends old and new.

A Common Abode concept co-founded by Nelson Htoo and Elin Fu in July 2021, Hjem is a deep foray into Elin’s fond memories of life in the North.
