Talk: Dan Washburn on “The Forbidden Game – Golf & the Chinese Dream”, Saturday 8 Nov @ M on the Bund

R.S.V.P. required to M on the Bund
4pm – ¥75 (one drink included)

On Saturday the 8th of November, journalist Dan Washburn will give a talk on the unlikely topic of the Communist Party and golf in China.

Being a bourgeois and counterrevolutionary activity, golf is officially banned in China; in practice, however, party officials play on and profit from the not-so-secret golf courses around the county.

Read a review of Washburn’s book The Forbidden Game: Golf and the Chinese Dream here.
