NEON BOOK CLUB is a Tokyo-based community of book lovers who come together in an intimate space to discuss, listen, and perform. Founded in 2022, the regular bilingual book club events take up books related to feminism, queer sci-fi, contemporary art etc., and have collaborated with exhibitions across Tokyo. This zine is its first publication and collects short stories, essays, poetry, visual art and reading performance from the book club community, most of which are accompanied by translation (English and Japanese).
