Tom Scocca - Beijing Welcomes You

Wednesday, August 10, 2011 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Scocca, a journalist and Slate blogger, decamped to China in 2004, in time to watch Beijing gear up for the Olympics. As he reports on the stunning transformation of the city, which entailed everything from rerouting traffic, planting trees, and outlawing public spitting to engineering the weather, Scocca makes a case for Beijing as the capital of the future.
