Book Club June


Our book for June, Wild Grass: Three Portraits of Change, tells the stories of three ordinary Chinese citizens who stood up for their fellow underdogs against a regime that takes a dim view of dissent. The author, a longtime China correspondent, sees “wild grass” outliers like these as harbingers of a freer future for China. Read an interview with him here and a summary of the issues raised in the book here.

The full list of Book Club books for the five months of The Dark Matters can be downloaded in pdf format here.

The White Rabbit Book Club meets in the Library on the third floor of the Gallery 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.
