Our first event is just over a week away, and our book club is up and running! Every month, we’ll be choosing a featured author, and we’ll put one of their stories – in Chinese and in English translation – up on our site, as well as audio recordings where possible. We’re going to be having a book club meeting in Leeds every month – held in Costa in Blackwell’s Bookshop, just across the road from the university. Our first meeting will be on Wednesday October 15th, from 3pm to 4.30.
But we also have a ‘virtual’ book club, if you can’t get to Leeds. All you need to do is join our mailing list, and you’ll be signed up to the Writing Chinese network. Our discussions of each month’s story will be held on our forum. See here for more details on how to join.
So head over to our Book Club page to find October’s writer, Chen Xiwo, and his story ‘The Man with the Knife.’
But be warned, it’s not for the faint of heart…
