Talk:
China Stories

Local author Rhiannon Jenkins Tsang talks about China and her debut novel 'The Woman Who Lost China'

Thursday May 7th 11.00 am
Free entry

Rhiannon Jenkins Tsang will discuss stories from China and her experiences of living and working in Hong Kong, China and Taiwan.

'The Woman Who Lost China' recreates the story of Manying and her family in the last days of Imperial China.

The novel tells the untold story of millions of Chinese who took decisions in 1949 about whether to stay or flee the communist army.
The consequences of their choices changed their lives and that of their descendants forever and conditioned the Chinese world we know today.
