On January 11 we will be talking about two books—Nicholas Jose’s Bapo, a collection of stories woven around characters and ideas the author encountered during three years in China; and Sheng Keyi’s Death Fugue, which uses fantasy to emphasise the contrasts between the China dreamed of in 1989’s Tiananmen protests and the Communist utopia for whose sake those dreams of freedom—and of poetry—were crushed.
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 or not you’ve read the nominated book, you are welcome to join us.
When: Second Sunday of every month, 2 p.m.
Where: Library, 3rd floor
How much: FREE
