One of the most frequent queries I receive from other book group leaders is where to find books that use other cultures and countries as a setting.
Here’s a link to a long list of lists of books set in other countries, mostly the Middle East. All the lists were created by Andrea Kempf, recently retired librarian at Johnson County (KS) Community College.
There’s a couple of other lists on this page as well, Anthropology Fiction, World War I and II fiction, and Math and Science novels (!).
