Details

The survival of the terracotta warriors and the famous 12th-century Chinese scroll painting, Qingming Shanghe Tu, is not only a miracle, but also raises important questions about the role of the artist as a keeper and interpreter of the records. According to Gary Geddes, the role of art is to make history strange, to make us see the past, and ourselves, in a new light. Hear Gary read and discuss (with visuals) The Terracotta Army (Goose Lane Editions) and Swimming Ginger.

Winner of British Columbia’s Lieutenant-Governor’s Award for Literary Excellence in 2008, Gary Geddes is the author and editor of more than forty books of poetry, fiction, drama, non-fiction, translation and anthologies and recipient of a dozen national and international literary awards. Swimming Ginger and an exciting reprint of The Terracotta Army are two in a long list of his books steeped in Chinese and Asian culture.
