Events: Meet the Author

We have welcomed a range of authors to Leeds to discuss fiction and non-fiction books covering Chinese business, culture, history and more.

Meet the Author events are organised in association with Blackwell’s University Bookshop, who provide a stall at each event with copies of the featured books available for you to buy (often with exclusive discounts!).
