To join a SEA Small Group activity, you must be a SEA member. The SEA is always looking for new group ideas and leaders (SEA members) for these groups. Please contact email@example.com with your suggestions.
Architecture Study Group
This inquisitive and informal group of 15 members meets at 10:00 am on the second Tuesday of each month from September to June. Each group member commits, alone or with another member(s), to research and lead at least one walk per year. The group focuses on Shanghai architecture/history/culture and does so in the context of interpretive walks lasting about two hours and ending someplace for a casual lunch. No architecture degrees or background are required, just a strong interest in Shanghai architecture combined with a love of walking. For more information, please contact Julie Chun at firstname.lastname@example.org.
FRIDAY BOOK CLUB
If you are a book lover and enjoy an intellectual discussion about what you’ve read, this is the group for you! The book club meets monthly on the second or third Friday of each month from 10:30 am to 12:30 pm, September through June. We meet at members’ homes and share the responsibility of leading the discussion. For more information, please email Anita Laurila at email@example.com.

Members of this group will learn about a ketogenic diet, why it’s beneficial, what foods to eat, to avoid and how to cook delicious dishes. The keto diet is a low carbohydrate diet, high fat diet (LCHF).
