Karoline Kan at Dalkey Book Festival

13 Jun 2019 – 16.00

The most important group in the world will, very soon, be the 300 million Chinese millennials. How do they think? How do they view the West and what future do they imagine for China, imminently the world’s biggest economy?

If you want to understand young people in China today, this is for you. Karoline Kan’s new book Under Red Skies traces her extraordinary life from a dirt poor village in rural China in 1989 to writing for the New York Times today.

It’s an engrossing account of a rapidly changing China seen through the eyes of an imaginative, ambitious young woman chafing at the constraints of a sexist society and a repressive state. If you want to hear what the future looks like, don’t miss this one off event. Karoline Kan in conversation with David McWilliams.

This event is proudly supported by Brewin Dolphin.
