"China: Perspectives from Two Correspondents" at Word Vancouver, September 25

Presented by Word Vancouver and the Asian Canadian Writers’ Workshop (ACWW), join us as President Todd Wong moderates this conversation with journalists Joanna Chiu, (China Unbound: A New World Disorder, House of Anansi Press) and Ian Young, BC bureau chief for Canadian Press.

Beijing is part of a growing new world disorder on the world stage, along with Putin's Russia. How will this impact Canada and Vancouver, through "wolf warrior" diplomacy, intimidation campaigns, cyber security vulnerabilities, and ownership of Canadian tech and natural resource companies? Please join Toronto Star journalist/author Joanna Chiu to address these issues from her new book China Unbound. Joining the discussion is Ian Young, new BC Bureau Chief for Canadian Press. Both Chiu and Young have covered China for more than a decade (Young as a correspondent for South China Morning Post) and both also covered the Meng Wanghou extradition hearings and the Two Michaels’ arrest and detention.
