Zing Tsjeng moderates panel for Miu Miu Literary Club


Miu Miu Literary Club Zing Tsjeng

This week in Milan saw Italian high fashion brand Miu Miu launch its inaugural Literary Club, including a panel moderated by author, presenter and journalist Zing Tsjeng.

Writing Life, a two-day event curated by Italian writer and researcher Olga Campofreda, brought back into focus the work of Sibilla Aleramo and Alba De Céspedes, alongside conversations, live performances and entertainment, further enhancing Miu Miu’s commitment to contemporary thought.

Zing Tsjeng moderated ‘Sibilla Aleramo: Our Brilliant Sisters’, a panel discussion about Aleramo’s A Woman.

First published in 1906, A Woman is considered Italy’s first feminist novel, an intimate, personal memoir as well as a passionate discussion on motherhood, marriage and freedom. The conversation was introduced by actress Bel Powley and featured a panel of Selby Wynn Schwartz (finalist for the Lambda Literary Award in LGBTQ Nonfiction and long-listed for the Booker prize), Viola Di Grado (Italian writer and 2011 Campiello Opera Prima winner) and Xiaolu Guo (novelist, memorist and film-maker – National Book Critics Circle Award 2017).
