This charity event is in support of Shanghai Baby Home. Come out and win incredible prizes from generous local businesses, have fun and help babies in need.

Sun, June 14: Circle of Sages
The Shanghai Writing Workshop is proud to present its newest project: Circle of Sages! Circle of Sages will undermine the idea of academia itself with a lecture series that informs, entertains and satarizes the very notion of a lecture. Veteran educators from Shanghai will not only offer lectures on topics that sound like they might be facing a thesis defense, but also on topics that have never found their way into a professor's office.
