‘Once upon a time in the East’
After a decade in Europe award winning author and film maker Xiaolu Guo will share passages from her extraordinary memoir ‘Once Upon a Time in the East.’ Described as a 'Wild Swans' for a new generation, the BBC4 Book of the Week which details the author’s incredible life journey, is a handbook of life lessons - from beginnings in a state of malnutrition living in a fishing village on the East China Sea to film school in a burgeoning Beijing and a scholarship to Britain, her now adopted home. This rebellious and moving piece provides the perfect backdrop for an evening of insightful discussion on the themes of migration, literature and Xiaolu’s creative life as writer and film maker.
