ABOUT OUR SPEAKER
Denise Chong, O.C., M.A., LL.D is an award winning writer, and an Officer of the Order of Canada. Her works include:
The Concubine’s Children, a memoir of her three generations of the author's mother's family, which was cleaved in two for much of the twentieth century, between Canada and China. Called “beautiful, haunting and wise” by the New York Times Book Review, it was a Globe and Mail bestseller for 93 weeks.
The Girl in the Picture: The Story about Kim Phuc, the Photograph and the Vietnam War, about that war’s most famous casualty of the girl injured in a napalm attack, and one of the few narratives about the war-torn south of Vietnam.
Egg on Mao: A Story of Love, Hope and Defiance, a mediation on the nobility of protest and human rights, which spans twentieth century China and pivots on the defiant act of a young bus mechanic (who now lives in Calgary) of marring Mao's portrait during the 1989 Tiananmen Square protests.
Lives of the Family, overlapping stories that follow a handful of immigrants who flee war-torn China or are sent by their families to work for relatives in Canada, or are sold or married off to men here, in an exploration of the immigrant's arc of exile, isolation and adaption.
If you're interested in purchasing one of Denise's books, they'll be on sale at the event for $20 for one, or $35 for two.
