Discuss the impact of the Trump presidency on U.S. and China relations with John Pomfret, AB ’81 AM ’84, over a delicious Chinese dinner at Ly Luck, a neighborhood favorite Chinese restaurant.  John is the author of the recently-published The Beautiful Country and the Middle Kingdom: America and China from 1776 to the Present (2016). He is also the author of the best-seller Chinese Lessons: Five Classmates and the Story of the New China (2007) and an award-winning journalist who spent decades as a foreign correspondent with The Washington Post. He has lived in China for 20 years since the early 1980s and has also covered U.S.-China relations from Washington, DC. As The New York Times said of The Beautiful Country, “Donald Trump (or his next secretary of state) would be well advised to read this timely and comprehensively informative book.” 

The book will be available for purchase at the event.
