PAST EVENT: Chinese whispers
31 May 08

China is the source of some of today’s most vibrant writing, but are Chinese writers free to face up to the difficult issues facing their society in the 21t century, or are they forced to speak in a whisper? What are the key trends in popular and literary Chinese fiction? And is there a difference between mainland Chinese fiction and the work created by Chinese writers living in the United Kingdon? On the eve of the 19th anniversary of Tiananmen Square, we bring together leading authors Ma Jian, Diane Wei Liang and Liu Hong Cannon in a discussion chaired by Hari Kunzru.

The event also marks the launch of the latest issue of Index on Censorship, Made in China

Venue: Guardian Newsroom, 60 Farringdon Road, London, EC1R 3GA
