I'll also be at the London Book Fair on April 18th, discussing Jade Ladder and related stuff with WN Herbert, Yang Lian, Nicky Harman and David Constantine. See http://www.londonbookfair.co.uk/en/Sessions/243/Bringing-Chinese-Poetry-to-the-UK

Sorry, Brian. I compiled this list from the British Council programme, not from the London Bookfair programme.

To be honest, I couldn't find the programme for the Literary Translation Centre at the Bookfair, but here it is http://www.londonbookfair.co.uk/en/Focus-On/Literary-Translation/Literary-Translation-Centre-events/#
