The Bookworm, in collaboration with the Foreign Correspondents Club of China and the Columbia Global Centers/East Asia, invites you to honor Rick Baum’s life and achievements, sharing memories and reflections.We shall be hosting an informal evening to which we hope everyone in Beijing who knew Rick or who profited from his brainchild, CHINAPOL, will come. We will discuss Rick’s and CHINAPOL’s contributions to academic research and journalistic coverage of China and provide an opportunity for Rick’s friends, colleagues and admirers to celebrate his life.
If you would like to kick-start the evening with your own recollections or comments, please get in touch with us.The event is free and open to the public; food and drink will be available at the bar (at your own expense, but at special low Happy Hour prices.)
Please join us on Thursday, January 24, 2013 at 7:30 pmat the Bookworm Beijing.
