Hope you're enjoying Beijing vs. Xinjiang over links (China's March Madness?); also, the Bookworm Literary Festival's closing party is tonight at the Bookworm, more or less happening now. Admission is free, so go make an appearance.
Happy St. Patrick's Day links. I'd be remiss if I didn't mention real quick that Poetry Night in Beijing packed the house last night, so thanks to all those who came out. And of course, thanks to all our readers and Canaan, Eleanor, and Helen. We'll have to do that again sometime.
As some of you may know, I'm moderating a blogging event with Jeremy Goldkorn, Alec Ash, Mia Li, and Tao Stein on March 18. We've just received word that, due to demand, the venue has changed from iQiyi to The Bookworm. We'll have more information about this later in the week. For now, links.
Reminder: Tomorrow is the deadline for Poetry Night in Beijing, so get those poems in. Also: our friends at the Bookworm would like you to know they've added a Beijing Literary Festival warm-up event for Sunday at 7:30 pm: He Jiahong, "one of China’s top experts in criminal evidence, evidential investigation and criminal procedure," will be by to talk about the mysterious case of She Xianglin, presumed murdered until she reappeared 11 years later.
