Chinese Writers Visit Murphy Institute

In mid-January, our project hosted a lively exchange between authors representing the National Writers Union and four authors visiting from Zhejiang Province representing their writers' union.   They were: Zang Jun, a commentator and vice president of the Zhejiang Provincial Writers Association; Zhu Xiongwei, novelist and vice president of the Ningbo Writers Association; Wang Liansheng, also a novelist and vice president of the Hangzhou Writers Association, and Wang Tianqiang, translator and director of the Zhejiang International Cultural Association.

Topics discussed included preservation of native Chinese culture, the reading tastes of Chinese migrants and the living and working conditions of writers in China.  To read more about the exchange please visit the website of Marie Montebon who wrote a very nice piece on the visit:
