8-3-11: Tom Scocca

August 3, 2011 at 8:00 am Leave a comment

Just try writing a long book about a fast-moving target like Beijing.

Tom Scocca has done it–his new book Beijing Welcomes You: Unveiling the Capital City of the Future chronicles the rapid development that led up to China’s Olympic moment in 2008.

Today he tells Sheilah what it’s like to live in a fascinating–if incredibly polluted–city, and what America looks like from the perspective of a rising rival.

Tom Scocca will discuss and sign copies of Beijing Welcomes You at Baltimore’s Atomic Books on Friday at 7 p.m. Details at Atomic’s website.
