Jung Chang Charleston Festival Event Image

Jung Chang, author of the autobiographical ‘Wild Swans’ and other internationally best-selling books, recounts the lives of the three Soong sisters from Shanghai, who each played a crucial role in shaping modern China whilst in the midst of war, revolution and seismic transformations.

Weaving her way through Chinese history from the 1880s to 1970s and drawing on her own experience of growing up in Maoist China, Chang demonstrates how China’s past reverberates in the present. Following an illustrated talk, Jung Chang is joined in conversation by biographer Hilary Spurling, author of ‘Burying the Bones: Pearl Buck in China’.
