We regret to announce that Jung Chang has had to cancel her New Zealand tour and so her Christchurch event will not be going ahead. All ticket holders will be contacted for a refund.
WORD Christchurch welcomes back Jung Chang, bestselling author of Wild Swans, to present her new book, Big Sister, Little Sister, Red Sister: Three Women at the Heart of Twentieth-Century China.
As the country battled through a hundred years of wars, revolutions and seismic transformations, the three Soong sisters from Shanghai were at the centre of power, and each of them left an indelible mark on history. Chang is a consummate storyteller and will take us on a gripping journey of love, war, bravery and betrayal, from the compounds of the Communist elite in Beijing to the corridors of power in democratic Taiwan. You won’t want to miss this enthralling event.
Jung Chang will give a presentation, followed by an interview with Jo Malcolm and audience Q & A.
