Gala Dinner with Pico Iyer (Moe Clark Performance) 與Pico Iyer共度週年晚宴

With the support of the Consulate General of the United States

 

Most of us will take in more data today than Shakespeare did in his entire lifetime. Our children will spend an average of eleven years of their lives on their phones. How can we maintain our sanity and balance when we are surrounded by so many “weapons of mass distraction”? Drawing on his bestselling TED book, The Art of Stillness, which has been translated into eighteen languages, celebrated novelist, journalist and essayist Pico Iyer will offer guidance on living in a posthuman world. In conversation with Asia Tatler journalist Lee Williamson, join our special annual dinner at the China Club and learn the art of remembering what matters most.

今時今日,大多數人接收的資訊比莎士比亞畢生接收的還多。我們的下一代更可能把人生平均11年花在手機上。 當我們每天被種種資訊和媒體包圍,我們該如何保持清醒的頭腦,平衡自己用在數碼和現實世界的時間? 知名小說家、記者兼論說家Pico Iyer對如何在後人類世界生活有獨特見解。他的作品《靜思的藝術》獲翻譯成18種語言,是 TED暢銷書籍。他來中國將參加我們的特別週年晚宴,細聽Iyer的忠告,一同反思生命中最重要的事物。Asia Tatler的作者 Lee Williamson將參與晚宴,並會與Iyer進行深度交流。
