On May 11, we’ll be discussing Tom Carter’s anthology Unsavory Elements: Stories of Foreigners on the Loose in China, a compilation of pieces by waiguoren, outsiders, who have lived or settled in China. They report and reminisce on experiences both ordinary and unusual, from doing business to stowing away on a train, and from sampling street food to partying with the new rich. Read an interview with the author 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.
Where: Library, 3rd floor
How much: FREE
