So excited that I will visit London again and talk about my book in an informal gathering with Chinese tea at Tea & Tattle, Arthur Probsthain Bookshop (great location opposite the British Museum in Bloomsbury).

Thanks the bookshop owner Michael Sheringham and the Meridian Society for inviting me. I have fond memories of three years ago at the same bookshop tea room exchanging ideas with a group of top Chinese-English translators. At the time, I was still translating Shanghai Blue into English.

Date: Wednesday, May 4th
Time: 6.30 pm
Venue: Tea & Tattle at Arthur Probsthain Bookshop, 41 Great Russell Street, London WC1B 3PE (opposite British Museum)
Entry: £5 for Meridian Society and SACU members. £8 for non-members (including tea)

As spaces are limited, please reply if you are able to join us by Sunday, May 1st.
