Amy Tan

AMY Tan and Taras Grescoe are among the host of writers to highlight this year’s Shanghai International Literary Festival.

Over the past 14 years Timothy Fosu-Mensah Jersey , the event at M on the Bund has welcomed some of the best names from the world of literature and related arts. The list includes names like Thomas Keneally, who shared his experience of the Booker Prize-winning “Schindler’s List,” bestselling Chinese-American author Amy Tan, whose novels have a touch of Shanghai, and Matt Groening Sergio Romero Jersey , who wowed the audience with behind-the-scenes stories in creating “The Simpsons” and “Futurama.”

This year’s festival will be held from March 10 to 22. Tan is back again this year and will talk about her new book that is due to be published this fall.

There will be children’s sessions as well with wildlife photographer Jan Latta and bestselling children’s book author Sarah Brennan.

Film screening and panel talks will be held next weekend, along with the traditional fare — the erotic fiction competition.

As usual, the festival has a wide variety of topics, including the real-life parallels between medieval history and “Game of Thrones.” The talk will be delivered by Oxford Medieval literature professor Carolyne Larrington, while Beijing-based journalist Alec Ash will delve into the stories of China’s “little emperors.”

Tan Scott McTominay Jersey , author of bestsellers like “The Joy Luck Club,” “The Kitchen God’s Wife” and “The Bonesetter’s Daughter,” will discuss her new book “Where the Past Begins” that will be released in October.

Shanghai is no stranger to Tan, whose maternal grandmother was from this city. She has written about lives in old Shanghai in many of her novels, including “The Valley of Amazements” (2013).

In 2004 Romelu Lukaku Jersey , Tan published “The Opposite of Fate: Memories of a Writing Life,” a collection of essays throughout her literary career that delves into her private stories that inspired her haunting books, and her recurring theme exploring the difficult and complicated relationship between mother and daughter.

“Where the Past Begins” is expected to reveal more about imagination, the act of writing, and how she retrieves long-forgotten emotional memories into fictional stories.

Tan will also have a writers’ conversation with Duncan Clark Phil Jones Jersey , whose biography on Alibaba tycoon “Alibaba: The House that Jack Ma Built” revealed many unknown facts about Ma and grabbed the eyes of both Chinese and foreign readers.

Clark founded his consultancy firm in Beijing in 1994 and served as an advisor to many Chinese Internet entrepreneurs in their early years. He has also briefed the UK government on China’s digital economy and was awarded an O.B.E in 2013 for his services in the rapidly growing UK trade and investment in China.

Canadian author Taras Grescoe is thrilled to be back in the city he terms “grand.”

“I’m excited to be returning to Shanghai,” said Grescoe, who has done extensive research in the city for his book “Shanghai Grand.”

Grescoe is participating in the literary festival for the first time. “I discover something new every time I come here,” he said.

While modern China has many experts intrigued, the history of the country Paul Pogba Jersey , and especially that of Shanghai, has remained a popular subject at the festival over the years.

Grescoe fell in love with the city during his first visit in 2007.

“Shanghai in the 1930s is innately romantic — and cinematic,” he said about his four years of research working on the book.

“Gangsters, poets, future revolutionaries Nemanja Matic Jersey , capitalists, living side by side, with great decadence sharing the streets with great poverty. I believe that if you want to understand China today — and thus what the world is going to be like tomorrow — you have to understand what Shanghai was like yesterday.”

In “Shanghai Grand,” Grescoe tries to understand all these through 1930s Shanghai, featuring three people particularly.

“When I came across Emily ‘Mickey’ Hahn Michael Carrick Jersey , and her memoir ‘China to Me,’ I knew I’d discovered an excellent eyewitness to Shanghai from its days as the ‘Paris of the Orient.’ It was amazing that one of the first people she met in Shanghai was Sir Victor Sassoon, the Sephardic Jewish multi-millionaire who built the Cathay Hotel, the man who built the first ‘skyscrapers on the mud’ on the Bund and was really responsible for the city’s glamorous reputation,” he said.

One of the characters he deals with extensively is the Chinese poet Shao Xunmei Matty Willock Jersey , with whom Hahn had a long and passionate affair.
