Joining them are Chinese veteran writers, Su Tong, Li Er, Xi Chuan, and younger literary talent, including Xu Zechen, Di An and A Yi.

Li Er has just released a novel about the lives and careers of intellectuals in contemporary China. Li said European literature has had deep influences in modern Chinese and contemporary writing.

"Chinese literature has a special emphasis on reality, but facing rapid transformations, writers are striving to reflect and record the reality from different angles and with different methods," Li said, "as a result, their new work will be interesting to European readers."

The previous editions of the festival were held in November 2017, May 2018 and November 2018, involving 160 writers and taking place across several Chinese cities.

This edition is co-organized by Experience Europe, Beijing Reading Festival and China Citic Press.
