Bookclub : “Behind the Wall : a Journey through China” by Colin Thubron

27 October 2018 : 16 h 30 min - 18 h 00 min

Join our multilingual bookclub ! We gather monthly on Saturday to discuss a book related to China, its history, culture and traditions.

“Having learned Mandarin, and travelling alone by foot, bicycle and train, Colin Thubron sets off on a 10,000 mile journey from Beijing to Tibet, starting from a tropical paradise near the Burmese border to the windswept wastes of the Gobi desert and the far end of the Great Wall. What Thubron reveals is an astonishing diversity, a land whose still unmeasured resources strain to meet an awesome demand, and an ancient people still reeling from the devastation of the Cultural Revolution.”

Next meeting : Saturday 24 november,”Little hut of leaping fish” by Chiew-Siah Tei
