Karl Pohrt in China

By Bud Parr

Over at Three Percent, Karl Pohrt, owner of Shaman Drum bookstore and part of a US delegation of booksellers visiting the Beijing book fair, has been blogging his visit to China. Karl's most recent post is an exciting account of his dinner with three poets, Zhai Yongmin, Zhou Zan and Xi Chuan. Here at WWB, we were especially thrilled to hear that he had met the latter--and hope we'll hear more about the encounter--as Xi Chuan is someone we also admire and whose work is featured here on the website...(one is tempted to say small world, but is it really?)
