The bestselling author of Wild Swans

An Evening with Jung Chang

Join Jung Chang, bestselling author of Wild Swans and Mao: The Unknown Story, for a fascinating evening discussing the dramatic life of Empress Dowager Cixi, the most powerful woman in Chinese history.

Jung Chang presents an impassioned biography of a woman commonly demonised in historical fiction, giving the Empress her due for her part in revolutionising China's domestic and foreign affairs including the abolishment of foot binding.

Although banned in Mainland China, Jung Chang’s books have been translated into 40 different languages and sold over 40 million copies worldwide so come prepared for a thoroughly engaging talk from an author who has helped alter historical thinking.

Running time: Presentation 40mins, Q&A 15mins

"Jung Chang tells a story and what a colourful tale it is. This is history at its most readable."
