On November 10, we’ll be discussing, probably in more than ten words, Yu Hua’s China in Ten Words, a series of essays on the country’s recent history based on ten key Mandarin terms—from “people” and “leader” to “copycat” and “bamboozle”. These are given humour and depth by the author’s reflections on his own life and experiences going back to the Cultural Revolution. Read a review here.
The White Rabbit Book Club meets in our Library on the second Sunday of each month. Under the broad headings of China and art, we discuss novels, memoirs, history books, current affairs and even cookery. Whether you’ve read the book or not, everyone is welcome.
When: Second Sunday of every month, 2 p.m.
