An evening with Yang Zhijun & Ma Pinglai

Wednesday 17 October 2018, 3.30-5.30pm
University of Leeds Parkinson Building, Room B08
Free, but please register on Eventbrite (link below)

In partnership with Alain Charles Asia Publishing, we're very happy to welcome the ACA Chinese Literature UK Roadshow to Leeds this month!

The event will feature two authors - Ma Pinglai (马平来) and Yang Zhijun (杨志军), who will be discussing their work and their recent books in translation. It will also be a fantastic opportunity to discuss with the publishers the challenges and opportunities of bringing Chinese fiction to a Western market.

The Elm Tree by Ma Pinglai is set in the hutongs of Old Beijing, while Mastiffs of the Plateau by Yang Zhijun  is set in the mountainous Tibetan Plateau. Both books offer English-language readers an insight into aspects of Chinese culture previously hidden behind the veil of another language.

The event will be in Chinese and English interpretation.

There'll be a prize draw, organised by ACA Publishing, with the chance to win a bottle of champagne!

Find out more about both authors on the Eventbrite page, where you can also register to attend.
