Some coincident is so amazing that if I write about it in a novel, it would sound implausible. So I knew my older daughter May/Mei would get a chance to read for a British Library literary event. I didn’t expect that it would have anything to do with China. And it turned out that she was asked to read a poem by Qiu Jin, China’s first feminist. Guess what? I am writing a historical novel inspired by Qiu Jin. What a coincident! Maybe an omen?
Here’s the link to the event. You can watch it in the next 24 hours. If I do say so myself, Mei did a fine job!
