Xinran Xue Visit
Chinese-born author of the acclaimed The Good Women Of China, Xinran Xue, talks to the public at both the Fringe Club and Foreign Correspondents' Club. Having suffered a harsh childhood during the Cultural Revolution, for eight years from 1989 Xue hosted a late-night programme on Radio Nanjing, talking about women's lives and inviting callers to tell their stories.
