Saigon Saturday Stories Club

Written by

Vietnam-based American children’s book author, Curtis Norris has now turned his club into a free service as part of his larger objective to promote reading and literacy in Vietnam.


Curtis is making his books available for all children in Vietnam and he has already given away four of his books through his service. He will be releasing his 12-book series Magipelago through the club soon.


Parents can join the club by sending an email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to receive a new, printable ebook each week.


Curtis has also set up a Gofundme page to get support for the club in the hope that he can print 1,000 copies of his books for free distribution to schools and libraries in the most disadvantaged rural areas. Funds raised will also go towards translation, artwork, printing and distribution costs.
