More about love

If you were touched by the 2007 movie of finding true love at the end of life, you can talk with writer Yu Hua and Spanish literature expert Chen Zhongyi at the book launch for the first authorized Chinese version of El Amor en Los Tiempos del Colera (Love in the Time of Cholera).

The novel is the first from Gabriel Garcia Marquez, writer of One Hundred Years of Solitude, after winning the Nobel Prize in literature in 1982. It tells a love epic that covers more than five decades and is hailed as "the greatest love story ever in human history".

Garcia Marquez has had a huge influence on acclaimed Chinese writers from the 1980s onwards. The book's translator is to present the launch.

Advance tickets required.

2 pm, Aug 27. Conference Hall, Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, 5 Jianguomen Neidajie, Beijing. 010-6842-3599, 6272-6647.
