Brief Introduction to Prof. Dan Yu:
Dan Yu is an associate professor at China's Beijing Normal University. She is also assistant to the Dean, Faculty of Arts & Media, as well as Head, Department of Film & Television Media. She has a master degree in ancient Chinese literature and a doctoral degree in film & TV studies.
In late 2006, a series of her lectures entitled "Yu Dan's Insights into the Analects" was broadcast for seven days on China Central Television (CCTV) as part of the Lecture Room program. Her messages were warmly welcomed by the audience. The transcript, edited into a book "Yu Dan's Notes on the Analects", sold 10,000 copies within the first day of release. Within 40 days, sales exceeded 1.5 million. By September 2007, the book has sold 4.2 million legal copies and an estimated 6 million pirated ones since its publication in December and remains on best-seller lists.
Yu is now a household name in China because she managed to make the ancient texts of Confucius (551-479 B.C.) and Zhuangzi (369-286 B.C.) understandable and relevant to laymen with "colloquial re-wordings and vivid short stories".

August 2
Good Dim Sum and a good laugh at Jade Garden Restaurant in the International District (Chinatown)
11:30am
Jade Garden
704 S King St
Seattle, WA 98104
206 622-8181
Let's see if we could find some Dim Sum fans in this group to start a bi-weekly or weekly Dim Sum excursion team. smile Frankly, there are not a lot of good places around Seattle. However, you can't beat good food with die-hard dim sum fans who appreciate Chinese Culture.
As we will be having some functions in the coming weeks, I will have to make this on Aug 2nd.
Details regarding parking will be dispatched.
Hope that some of you will make it. See u there....!
