Featuring: Anurag Viswanath, moderated by Daniel Ho
Event Code: IQ20C
Anurag Viswanath’s debut book is a whirlwind journey through China’s vastness, slicing through preconceptions and shibboleths through her diverse interactions — with Muslim housewives in Xinjiang, Mongols dressing up for tourism, academics, baijiu-loving party officials, restless migrant workers, and more. As one reviewer wrote, “With a scholar's depth, a journalist's eye for the detail and a story-teller's wit, Anurag Viswanath takes the reader to intimate arenas of living history through Indian parallels and presents a uniquely insightful treatise on contemporary China.”
This event will be held at iQiyi, an official festival venue located next to The Bookworm.
