Scattered Seeds: Writers from China and the Chinese Diaspora

As part of the 40th Anniversary of the International Writing Program, several noted IWP alumni have returned to Iowa City. A special reading of Chinese writers is planned to celebrate. The reading will take place in the Adler Journalism Building room E105 on Thursday, October 11 from 5:00 Р6:30 p.m.

Li Rui (2002), Xi Chuan (2002), Ya Hsien (1967), and Cheng Wen-tao (1968-71), as well as IWP 2007 residents Lo Yi-chin (Taiwan), Lawrence Pun (Hong Kong) and special guest Yun He (China/The Philippines) will discuss Chinese writing and literature. Poets Xi, Ya, Cheng, and Yun will also read from their work.

The writers will also visit the Main Library to see the current exhibit “East Asia in the Midwest.”
