Alec will be in conversation discussing the themes in his new book, Wish Lanterns, as part of a panel discussion entitled The Human Faces of China.
From the passionate foot soldiers of the Cultural Revolution to those born under a one-child policy into a life of expectation, China is a nation defined by generational differences. Journalist and author Xinran is joined by China correspondent Rob Schmitz (Street of Eternal Happiness) and Beijing writer and journalist Alec Ash as they build a fascinating portrait of the distinct personal experiences that lie behind a country all too often characterised by stereotypes.
