Award-winning novelist and scriptwriter Yan Geling’s prolific body of work examines the intricacies of relationships against a backdrop of historical periods that readers cannot help but escape into. In this meet-the-author session, she speaks on her writing process and her inspiration in creating works that not only entertain and resonate, but also invoke a deeper understanding of the world and oneself.

This programme is in Mandarin and includes a live Q&A towards the end of the session.
