Contemporary Chinese Writers in Conversation

Fresh from the London Book Fair, two of China’s most talked about and widely read contemporary authors will spend an evening in conversation with Alan Bissett, Glenfiddich Spirit of Scotland Writer of the Year 2011.

In a first for Scotland, Xu Zechen, leading editor and novelist, and Annie Baobei, online literary sensation, will engage in discussions with Alan who has recently returned from the Bookworm Festival in Beijing. Both nations, vast and small, have experienced their own forms of profound social and economic change – how do writers from each culture reflect this?
