Jung Chang, author of the classic Chinese autobiography Wild Swans and other internationally best-selling books, recounts the lives of Big Sister, Little Sister, Red Sister: Three Women at the Heart of Twentieth Century China. Drawing on her own experience growing up during the Maoist regime, she tells the engrossing story of the three Soong sisters from Shanghai, each of whom played a crucial role in shaping modern China, witnessing war, revolution, betrayal, and seismic transformations. At a time when China is in the spotlight, Chang offers gripping insight into its recent history and power politics. Jung Chang will be in conversation with Lei Jin, Chair of the Chinese Department at the College of Charleston.
