The Woman Who Could Not Forget: Iris Chang Before and Beyond the Rape of Nanking, A Memoir on Saturday, September 24, 2:30-4pm

A moving, illuminating memoir about the life of world-famous author and historian, Iris Chang, as told by her mother, Ying Ying Chang.

Iris Chang's best-selling book The Rape of Nanking forever changed the way we view the Second World War in Asia. Her mother, Ying-Ying Chang, provides an enlightened and nuanced look at her daughter, from Iris' home-made childhood newspaper, to her early years as a journalist, and later, as a promising young historian, her struggles with her son's autism and her tragic suicide. The Woman Who Could Not Forget cements Iris' legacy as one of the most extraordinary minds of her generation and reveals the depth and beauty of the bond between a mother and daughter.

A book sale and signing will follow this program. Presentation will be conducted in English and Mandarin.
