March 29 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 7:00 pm on Tuesday, repeating until March 29, 2022

Free

In this special 5-part series to be held in the Brubeck Room, lecturer Jim Levey will examine China’s history, philosophies, and traditions from ancient times through the Cultural Revolution to try to better understand the underlying forces that explain China today.

The series will run every Tuesday in March from 7 p.m.-8:30 p.m.

Jim Levey, formerly a partner at American China Mercantile and a senior manager at IBM, holds a Master’s in China Studies from the Asian Institute, St. John’s University, New York. In 2018, he researched and wrote a new curriculum (reviewed by China experts at Columbia) that spans Chinese history from antiquity to present, to enable a more insightful view of “China in the Modern World.” Since then, he has delivered China lectures to numerous libraries and continuing education facilities in New York, Virginia, Massachusetts, and Ohio.

Registration required. Please register online at the Wilton Library website or call 203-762-6334. Email asato@wiltonlibrary.org for more information.
