Note: CCPN Global participated in a research project 'New migrants from the BRIC countries in the UK, USA, Australia and Japan' from 2009-13. We also concern the second generation Chinese in the UK. PP Wong, the author of The Life of a Banana, is one of them. She founded a Website for Asian Writers. 'It is a global platform for East Asian and South East Asian writers to share their work with the world; it encourages new writers to step out of their comfort zone and follow their dreams, is a place for writers to share their thoughts and perspectives on life, and a showcase work that makes people think - fiction, articles, interviews, poems, scripts and songs', It provide a wonderful source for us to understand them with a comparative perspective.
CCPN Global, Global China Press and UVIC (UK Visa and International Education Centre) are pleased to announce an excited book reading event. Selected sections will be read by the author, followed by a Q&A session, and it is a chance to buy a copy of the book with the author’s signature.
