Who’s your favourite Beijing writer? Lao She, and his insightful observations of life among the Hutongs, from theatrical ambitions to family tensions? Wang Shuo. and his dystopian exploration of the Beijing underworld? Or Feng Tang and his chronicles of dispassionate Beijing youth?
On Saturday 23, 2h30pm, come to ACMI – The Cube, and discover Beijing through the eyes of Melbourne writer and Marco Polo Festival director Julien Leyre, and 南方都市报 cultural analyst and senior Beijing correspondent Zhang Tianpan. This imaginary journey through the Chinese capital will be facilitated by writer Nic Low, as part of a Melbourne Writers Festival series called ‘City to City‘ – and as part of the Marco Polo Festival.
We wish to particularly thank Chin Communication for sponsoring this session!
