KIDS [5+]: The Girl from the French Fort 10:00 16th Mar / The Bookworm – Beijing

Hong Ying has spent her life in pursuit of the written word – leaving home at 18 to wander for a decade around China, supporting herself through her writing, before moving to London for another decade, where she was published in English. She returned to Beijing in 2000. Her latest work is the children’s book The Girl from the French Fort, a collaboration with Beijing-resident illustrator Cherry Denman. The book was instantly popular in China, and has proven to be a delight for Beijing kids, whether local or expat.
