Topic: Macao – People & Places, Past & Present
Jason Wordie will talk about his new book which is a compelling, multi-layered social history of Macao. He will talk about the people who made Macao what it is today and how he explored the small territory from north to south, east and west to unveil the physical and geographical places many of those familiar with Macao will have left untouched. Jason will reveal the many dimensions that make Macao the uniquely special place that it is today – and has always been.
