Happenings

The Bookworm’s library provides the perfect setting for readings, talks, discussions and debates, book launches, performances, and music. Audiences are enlightened by well respected novelists, journalists and travel writers; enraptured by impromptu homespun musical soirees hatched round the piano; and transported to lands far away by lilting lines of poetry. Whether your penchant is for the hottest new Chinese writers, Asia’s most illustrious entrepreneurs, or the most risque documentaries, you’ll be able to indulge it at The Bookworm.

Tickets for events are 50 RMB for members of The Bookworm (become a member!) and 60 RMB for non-members unless otherwise specified. Tickets go on sale at The Bookworm two weeks before an event. To make an advance booking, email order@beijingbookworm.com. Advance tickets must be picked up 30 minutes before the start of the event. All seating is first-come, first-served.
