On the Wings of the Dragon

In 1985 Belgian writer Lieve Joris set sail to the former Belgian colony of Congo, where her great-uncle had been a missionary. Congo became a recurring theme in her work, but her latest book, On the Wings of the Dragon, is about her journeys between Africa and China, written after she submerged herself in the world of Africans and Chinese who ventured into each other’s territory. Don’t miss this chance to hear one of Europe’s leading non-fiction writers share her thoughts and observations on a rapidly-expanding area of cultural exchange.
