On November 5, Jung Chang, author of bestseller Wild Swans, launches her newest work, Big Sister, Little Sister, Red Sister: Three Women at the Heart of Twentieth-Century China, in a conversation about China’s past, present and future. The book examines the lives of three of the most famous women in modern China: the Soong sisters, whose families and marriages changed the fate of an embattled China through civil war and revolution. The conversation will be moderated by Richard Bernstein, culture critic and commentator for more than 40 years. Bernstein was a foreign correspondent in Asia and Europe for Time magazine and The New York Times, and was the first Beijing bureau chief for Time. He is the author of many books on Chinese and Asian themes, among them The Coming Conflict with ChinaUltimate Journey, and China 1945: Mao’s Revolution and America’s Fateful Choice. He lives in New York.
