“Chinese Reading #Inspiration for Adults” at the forthcoming #Chinese #Reading and #Writing Festival


I am pleased to share with you, that I will be discussing “Chinese Reading Inspiration for Adults” during the forthcoming Chinese Reading and Writing Festival organised by the Whitehorse Manningham Libraries.

Quoting the official website: “This vibrant festival celebrates Chinese and Chinese-Australian literature and culture with an exciting program of events and activities aimed at encouraging community connections and promoting the power of reading, writing, language and literature to enrich lives.”

Many well-known Chinese and Chinese-Australian authors/writers/artists will be attending the festival, including Melanie Cheng, Benjamin Law, Alice Pung, Dr Sue Chen, Queenie Chan, Wang Ruobin, Elizabeth Chong, and others. Also will be presenting on her own and in conversation with Carole Wilkinson is Kylie Chan.

Other interesting sessions feature the ancient Chinese puzzle of Tangram, renowned filmmaker Ang Lee’s Eat Drink Man Woman (1994), Chinese cooking, Chinese calligraphy, manga-style comic book design, Chinese essay writing, and Chinese poetry.

In my own event, which takes place at The Pines Library at 2-3pm on February 27 (Wednesday), I will share my own recent Chinese-language book reading highlights and discuss the global Chinese-language reading trends that have caught the attention of authors, literary agents and publishers worldwide. I will be speaking in Mandarin, but a summary in English will be provided here in this blog.

Please, come and share your love and passion for Chinese reading and writing. I will be blogging about many of the events during and after the festival, so, ah, watch this space even if you cannot attend the festival, ok?
