Mao Book Reading Tomorrow At HKU

There has been a great deal of hoopla surrounding Jung Chang and Jon Halliday's book about Mao Zedong, entitled "Mao: The Unknown Story". For those who have read the book or are interested in the subject, I highly recommend attending a book talk tomorrow by the famous Professor Wang Gungwu, Emeritus of Hong Kong University and a world-reknowned expert on China and the Chinese diaspora in Southeast Asia.

The details are as follows:

Date: 17 November 2005 (Thursday)
Time: 7:15 - 9:00 pm
Language: English
Venue: Special Collections, 1/F, Main Library, University of Hong Kong

Free Admission. Please register at:
Enquiries: 2859-8903

I unfortunately will not be able to make it, so anyone that has a chance to go, should, and please tell us about it afterwards!
