The International Bookworm Literary Festival Returns To Beijing | Mar.8-Mar.25, 2018

For our money, this is the best independent literary festival in Asia, if not the world. (Disclosure: SupChina editor Anthony Tao, who put together the SupChina-branded events for this year’s festival, coordinated the 9th and 10th editions of BLF. Still, we can objectively say this event occupies a vital place — and now more essential than ever — in the Beijing cultural scene.)
