House wine 30 rmb/glass; draft beer 20 rmb; 10 rmb discount on cocktails.

    The End of the Empires: Uncovering the ‘unknown’ China

Please join Dr. Garcia as he unveils, through trade routes and socio-economic relations, new tales and twists of China, Macau and even Marseille.

    DATE: Oct 16 (Friday)
    TIME: 7:30-9pm
    VENUE: The Bookworm
    ENTRANCE: free to FCCC members, 50 RMB for non-members, 40 RMB for members of the Bookworm
