ildren want, according to the survey, which covered 1,953 unmarried young people.

According to Ling Zi, a marriage consultant, it does more harm than good for parents to be overly involved in children’s ma

rriages. “It shows the distrust of the parents, and transfers their anxiety to their children,” said Ling.

It has become common in China for pushy parents to look for spouses for their children who are too busy or slow in finding love, the paper said.

ltural appeal of the countryside so as to attract people back, Jia says. The organizers are als

o working to promote communication between the authors and the villagers, and encourage more reading activities.

Rural resident Ren Chunhua, 63, who now works as a narrator at a local history gallery, was list

ening to Ge Fei’s lecture in her gallery neighboring the festival venue and wanted to buy his work and got the write

r’s signature. She thought Ma’s work inspired by village life in the 1950s was well-written and accurately reflected the reality there.

Literature aficionado Cao Liang drove for two hours from Taigu county to attend the lectures. Having coll

ected all of Su’s books and being familiar with many of the guest authors’ works, he is currently writing his own novel.

Villagers took turns to attend the festival, a move which Ren believes will in

vigorate the local cultural environment and raise Jiajiazhuang’s profile.
