But she also promised more work would be done to enhance the bill, which would go th

So by holding lectures, conducting dialogues and screen

ning movies related to the countryside and contributed by guest authors, the region’s local literary legacy can both be re-examined and extended.

cades ago, according to Ge Fei, author and a Chinese literature professor at Tsinghua University in Beijing.

He was rst day of the festival, interpreting what it means to us when rural societies fade away.
