This is the first of two book giveaways for “Still More Shanghai Walks” which I have co-authored with five other writers: Duncan Hewitt, Patrick Cranley, Lisa Movius, Bill Savadove and of course, an institution in Shanghai historian circles, Tess Johnston.

It’s still not too late to get tickets for the two panels I am speaking at the Shanghai and Suzhou Literary Festivals, March 12-13.  More details here.

And many thanks to Paul French for a first look at my table mat photography exhibit underway at Suzhou Bookworm. Paul, by the way, has been moderating many panels at the Lit Fests in Suzhou, Beijing and his latest will be for Barbara Demick on North Korea on Mar 12 at the Shanghai Lit Fest. Head over to for more details.

    Our photos have provided an insight to the lives of the commoners in Shanghai. A breath of fresh air from the glitzy side we are normally see in media.

    Congrats on the book! I have the two earlier volumes and they’ve been a source of pleasure for me and an excellent tool to get shy house guests out on their own. A great start to get the city ‘under their feet’.

    Hi Sue Anne,

    Thanks for the talk today at the Suzhou Bookworm, it was nice to meet you after following the blog for some time. I will look forward to reading the book when it is available, and hopefully it will give me some more areas to explore in Shanghai

    Fingers Crossed! Will it be available to purchase from Amazon (or other similar online book retailers) as well?

  • Reply March 13, 2011


    Oh, how I wish I could attend the literary festival and see you and hear you speak there! The book is really such a wonderful project!

  • Reply March 14, 2011


    It was a great talk yesterday at the Shanghai Lit Festival. Wish that all panelists/authors could’ve have had more opportunities to tell their stories! (Also, hope I win the book, but if I don’t – where can I buy it? Charterhouse? Garden Books?)
