Lindsay Fairgrieve, an author from England, joined us to discuss her newest release, "A Mature Student in China", a book about her experience as a 45-year-old college student in China.
From Her Amazon Page:
"Lindsay Fairgrieve gave up a lucrative career in London at the age of forty-five to follow her lifelong ambition of obtaining a university degree - at whatever cost. This is not a book about academia - instead, it is a fascinating account of Lindsay's encounters with her fellow classmates, most of whom were teenagers, as well as everyday life in England and China.
An avid gourmet, she goes on to describe her eleven month stay in Tianjin as well as her travels to Beijing, the Great Wall, Inner Mongolia, Shanghai, Lhasa, Kathmandu, Mount Everest, Hong Kong - and other interesting destinations. Lindsay also writes about some of the unusual foods she came across as she travelled around. Within this book, which contains some adult language and situations, you will find all manner of intrigue and humour. It is not, however, for readers of a faint-hearted disposition."
