Free: Greatest little BOOK CLUB in the world in Sydney's best private gallery.

Peter's amazing experiences as a U.S. Peace Corps volunteer teaching English literature to student teachers in China. Hessler (Ho Wei to his pupils) arrived in Fuling in 1997, the year Deng Xiaoping died and Hong Kong returned to Chinese rule. He records these historic events and the incidents of classroom life with affection, respect, and a good measure of art. Click here to hear a National Geographic interview with Hessler. Peter Hessler’s beguiling memoir River Town: Two Years on the Yangtze (HarperCollins 2001)

On the second Sunday of each month, book lovers gather in our top floor Library for some literary chat, in English.  Under the broad headings of China and art, we discuss novels, memoirs, history books, current affairs and even cookery.  Don’t worry if you haven’t read the book—everyone is welcome.

 

When: Second Sunday of every month, 2 p.m.

Where: Library, 3rd floor

How much: FREE

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
