Dear members,

It is our great honour to have Mr. Chan Koon Chung (陳冠中) to share with us his views about China at the 2010 Midsummer Afternoon Talk. He is an alumnus of the 1969 class of Wah Yan College Kowloon.

Born in 1952, Mr. Chan Koon Chung has lived in Taipei for six years, and studied Sociology, Politics and Media in University of Hong Kong and Boston University. He is one of the cultural pioneers in Hong Kong, practicing as a writer, critic and media practitioner. He is one of the founders of the ‘City Magazine’ 《號外》, which has been the most influential cultural magazine in the 1970s and 1980s. His latest novel In an Age of Prosperity: China 2013 is a sardonic and disturbing fictional consideration of the ‘harmonious society’ engineered by China’s party-state since the tumultuous events of 1989. He resides at Beijing and shuttles between China, Hong Kong and Taiwan etc.
