The legendary Jung Chang - author of Wild Swans - once again applies her storytelling brilliance to twentieth century China, and how the notorious Soong sisters changed the course of history.
Jung Chang grew up experiencing the brutal realities of Mao's policies, and her 1991 book, Wild Swans, about three generations of Chinese women, was translated into 37 languages and sold 13 million copies - despite being banned in mainland China.
In the legendary author's fourth book, Big Sister, Little Sister, Red Sister, she turns her attention to the Soong sisters: Ching-ling, who married the ‘Father of China’ Sun Yat-sen, and her two high-profile sisters May-ling and Ei-ling. This is an astonishing story of love, betrayal, corruption and greed. Don't miss this incredible session as Chang explores the murky underworld of the political class, the complex relationship between communism and feminism, and how powerful women have helped shape modern China.
