Click to enlargeNov 27th: Creative Women in <br>Contemporary China- Sheng Keyi<!--nosearch-->

Born in Yiyang, Hunan in the 1970s, Sheng Keyi is considered one of China's leading younger generation authors. Sheng's first full-length novel, Northern Girls published in China in 2004 and forthcoming in an English translation in 2012 drew on her own harrowing experience as a female job-seeking "migrant" to the southern economic boomtown of Shenzhen in the early 1990s. Sheng began to write full time in 2001 and has since won several prestigious national awards, including the Most Promising New Talent Award, the Guangdong New Talent Award, the New Works Award, and the Lu Xun Literature Prize.
