Join China Institute at our monthly mixer to mingle with old and new friends who share an interest in all things China. Light snacks and refreshments will be provided, plus a special reading this month of The Wounded Muse by author/journalist Robert F. Delaney.
Robert F. Delaney arrived in China as a student in 1992, and has been covering the country as a journalist for media outlets including Dow Jones Newswires, Bloomberg News, and South China Morning Post since 1995. Professionally, he spent many years covering the twists and turns of the country’s economic transformation and the evolution of the Sino-U.S. bilateral relationship. In his spare time, Robert turned to focus on writing about the personal struggles of those in the middle of these changes, which led to his first novel, The Wounded Muse. Many of the themes for the book were first developed in Route 1 to China, a collection of memoirs that won Robert first runner up in the University of Toronto – Penguin Random House Creative Writing Competition in 2012.
