Join this panel to gain insight into the different choices individuals make in times of ecological and political upheaval. From the futile persistence of twilight industries in a city undergoing a dramatic cultural shift to the heart-breaking struggles of families whose lives are shaken by earthquakes, listen as Hong Kong’s Lindsay Varty and New Zealand’s Chessie Henry tell life-defining stories of survival. This session will be moderated by Genevieve Hilton.
這次座談會將與大家探討人們在生態和政治劇變的時代所作出的不同選擇。從黃昏產業頑強地抵抗城市的急劇轉變，到凱庫拉地震過後掙扎求存的家庭，香港作家華蓮絲和紐西蘭作家Chessie Henry將會跟大家細說這些令人心碎的生存故事。本活動由Genevieve Hilton主持。
Chessie Henry is the author of We Can Make A Life, a family memoir which was recently awarded the E.H. McCormick Prize for General Non-Fiction at the 2019 Ockham New Zealand Book Awards.
Lindsay Varty is a half-British, half-Macanese woman raised in Hong Kong.
