The Bookworm (书虫) , 4 Sanlitun Nan Lu Tue 18 Mar 2014

This event has now passed.

Beijing Cream co-founder Anthony Tao gathers China bloggers from across the web to discuss the ins and outs of blogging China news, from the serious to the quirky, including protests, expat rivalries, and Chen Guangbiao's bombastic business cards. Does reading, writing and discussing these issues fill a hole left by the dry economic and political reporting of major media outlets, even adding shade and nuance? Or are blog readers primarily there for entertainment, seeking stories of bizarre China? Joining Tao to discuss these issues will be Alec Ash, founder of The Anthill, and Jeremy Goldkorn, founder of Danwei and co-host of the Sinica podcast.
