Author Rob Gifford Shares his China Road Experiences

On September 30, Cushing welcomed Rob Gifford, the author of one of our summer reading selections, China Road. Mr. Gifford shared with the Cushing community several experiences during his six-week journey on National Highway 312, China’s 3000 mile “mother road” that stretches from Shanghai to the Gobi Desert, as well as his take on the big question the world is asking: Will China be the next global superpower?

Mr. Gifford stressed the importance of considering China’s entire picture – the positive, the negative, and the country’s history – as we analyze its transformation and the country's struggles and triumphs as it finds its place in the world. Following assembly, he joined Cushing Scholars and faculty for lunch and a small-group discussion.
