Book signing in Jiading delights with reminiscences

( chinadaily.com.cn ) 2019-08-19

A sideline book signing activity at the 2019 Shanghai Book Fair in August opened on Aug 17 in Jiading district, attracting enthusiastic readers to line up for authors' signatures.

Lou Yaofu and Yin Huifen, two nostalgia writers with new books, participated.

"I hope I can have a taste of Mr Lou's understanding of his hometown and the life in the past, meanwhile, I can gain an understanding of Jiading's culture and history through the description of the local cloth in the book, " said Zhao Guohui, a big fan of Lou Yaofu.

Lou's new book is a collection of essays related to old buildings, old objects and traditional culture.

Furniture, local clothes or other old objects have condensed thousands of years of memories and people's feelings, and are enough to stir up homesickness.
