Featuring: Jess Row, moderated by Jack Smith
Event Code: IQ12B
Jess Row’s debut novel tackles issues of race and alienation with the most inventive of premises: a white Jewish man undergoes “racial reassignment surgery” to become a black man. Praised as “a refreshing plunge into the deep end of the race conversation” (AV Club), Your Face in Mine – and this discussion with Jack Smith, LGBT editor at Time Out Beijing – seeks to provoke thinking about identity politics and what it means to choose a particular culture.
This event will be held at iQiyi, an official festival venue located next to The Bookworm.
