The Bookworm’s library makes the perfect informal setting for our inspiring programme packed with readings, talks, discussions, debates, book launches and music gigs. 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 live 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 all events are 40rmb for members of The Bookworm and 50 rmb for non-members unless otherwise specified. TICKETS ARE ON SALE AT THE BOOKWORM, TWO WEEKS AHEAD OF THE EVENT. TO BOOK TICKETS IN ADVANCE, PLEASE EMAIL ORDER@BEIJINGBOOKWORM.COM. ADVANCE TICKETS MUST BE PICKED UP 30 MINUTES BEFORE THE START OF THE EVENT.
Bob Blunt shares the very true story of a 37-year-old Australian who moves to South Korea to teach English. The extraordinary emerges not just from the curious dynamics of ESL classrooms, but also from the colorful characters protagonist meets in bars and sordid karaoke rooms. Blunt peeks into the moral fabric of an unfamiliar culture that's dealing with a newfound modernity. He narrates, prods, pricks and observes every encounter at a tempo that will hold you in tight step with the central characters.
Blunt hosts the event to celebrate the release of his self-published book in Asia.
Nick Banks, bassist for Beijing-based band Eluvia, will play a special solo gig this at the Bookworm. Unwind with Banks' acoustic set of soul and blues.
40 RMB (Members), 50 RMB (Non-members)
