Join us at Metropolitain Brasserie for a delicious lunch and a conversation with Alexandre Trudeau

Each ticket includes a tasty meal, good company, great conversation and a copy of his new book,  Barbarian Lost, to get signed. Better yet, all proceeds support our free children’s literacy programs.

Ever since he was a boy, Alexandre Trudeau has been fascinated by this great county. Recounting his experiences in the China of recent years, Trudeau visits artists and migrant workers, townspeople and rural farmers. Often accompanied by a young Chinese journalist, Vivien, he explores realities caught in time between the China of our memories and the thrust of progress. The China he seeks out lurks in hints and shadows. It flickers dimly amidst all the glare and noise. The people he encounters along the way give up only small secrets, yet each revelation comes as a surprise that jolts us from our preconceived ideas and forces us to challenge our most secure notions.
