Don't forget! — Tomorrow evening at Asia Society, award-winning journalist Dan Washburn joins ESPN correspondent Jeremy Schaap for a discussion of Washburn's new book, The Forbidden Game: Golf and the Chinese Dream, which uses the politically taboo topic of golf to paint what reviewers are hailing as "an illuminating portrait of modern China." The Forbidden Game follows the lives of three men intimately involved in China's unorthodox golf scene, where new golf courses are at once banned and booming.

Washburn, who lived in China from 2002 to 2011, is now Director and Chief Content Officer of Asia Society Online. He spent more than seven years researching and writing The Forbidden Game, which has been described as "strikingly original" by The Wall Street Journal and "gripping" by The Economist.
