My Old Home with Orville Schell and Qiu Xiaolong

More Details

Orville Schell has written 16 books, 12 about China, during his distinguished career as a sinologist and academic and currently as the Arthur Ross Director of the Center on U.S.-China Relations at the Asia Society. He brings this extensive experience to bear in his first work of fiction, My Old Home: A Novel of Exile, a compelling historical narrative about a father and son caught up in the maelstrom of events in 20th century China. Tonight he is joined by prize-winning poet, translator and novelist Qiu Xiaolong, author of the iconic Inspector Chen series of historical crime novels set in China. Don’t miss hearing the perspectives of two seasoned observers on viewing recent history through a historical lens, as they talk with Emma Zhang, Lecturer in English at HKBU. This event is supported by the U.S. Consulate General of Hong Kong and Macao
