Encore Reading: Peter Hessler presents Country Driving 20:00 17th Mar / Studio X / Peter Hessler

“In China, it’s not such a terrible thing to be lost, because nobody else knows exactly where they’re going, either.”

Join us for this special addition to the Festival programme - an evening with Peter Hessler presenting his portrait of progress and a society in flux.  A road journey, cultural history and snapshot of the times, Country Driving is even broader in scope than the land it traverses. With keen analysis and twisting narratives, Hessler delivers another careful and compassionate account of China from an outsider’s point of view.
