Sunday July 16, 10am/ Outing: Shanghai Confucius Temple Book Market Visit/RSVP for meeting point: literaryshanghai@gmail.com

Held in the courtyard of Shanghai’s Confucius Temple, this weekly second-hand market is a treasure of vintage books, including graphic novels, 1930s journals, Mao-era propaganda, and more recent books, in English and Chinese. One historian found a 1980s Star Wars graphic novel, from long before the movie ever reached China – who knows what treasures you might unearth?
