Francesca Rhydderch appears at The Bookworm International Literary Festival, Beijing

Francesca Rhydderch one of our 2014 Bookcase authors, will appear at The Bookworm International Literary Festival, Beijing on Wednesday, March 12th.

The Bookworm International Literary Festival is an independently funded festival, celebrating literature and ideas, featuring writers, thinkers, artists and performers.

This year, the programme has more than 300 events across eight cities, connecting more than 110 Chinese and international writers and thinkers, and includes booktalks, panel discussions, writing workshops and performances.

Francesca Rhydderch will discuss her novel, The Rice Paper Diaries (Seren, 2013), which is partly set in Hong Kong during the Second World War, with Alexandra Buchler, Director of our sister organsiation, Literature Across Frontiers.

During their visit to China, Francesca Rhydderch and Alexandra Buchler will also meet with representatives from Shanghai Translation Publishing House, the largest comprehensive translation publishing house in China.

We look forward to welcoming representatives from Shanghai Translation Publishing House to Wales in May as part of a symposium on literature and publishing exchange between China and Wales. Wales Literature Exchange and Bangor University (Modern Languages, with the support of the Confucius Institute) will hold the symposium to celebrate the publication of the Wales focus edition of Foreign Literature and Art, a leading Chinese review.

Francesca Rhydderch’s journey to China is supported by Wales Arts International.
