Introducing: The China 10 Journalism Panel

China 10 Journalism

Five journalists with extensive China experience will convene at The Bookworm tomorrow to discuss the rewards, challenges, and nuances of reporting in this country in the past decade. There’s a lot to cover from this diverse panel, from Vatican-China relations to Sino-Japanese, from how the Olympics shifted (if it did) our perception of the country to how social media is affecting the journalist’s job, from Hu Jintao to Xi Jinping. We’ll try to cover it all! And of course, there will be time for audience questions. (more…)

Goldkorn was a Sinica original, but you might also know him as the founder of Danwei and an all-around pleasant guy — when he’s not calling out CCP officials as c*nts, of course. (more…)

Wil Sylvince in Chengdu

If you ever doubted Wil Sylvince feels at home in China, we have the definitive visual evidence to prove otherwise. Look at the above, taken this past week at Chengdu Bookworm. That’s about as immaculate a China pic as you can capture.

Wil will be in Beijing for one night only this Sunday as he headlines Bookworm Comedy Night. Storm Xu emcees, and Beijing’s very own Paul Creasy opens. It’s going to be great. (more…)
