Last Boat Out of Shanghai - Helen Zia

Helen Zia: Last Boat Out of Shanghai

謝漢蘭:《離開上海的最後一艘船》

Moderated by Alice Mong

Helen Zia’s most recent book, Last Boat Out of Shanghai, places the refugee exodus following China’s 1949 Communist revolution in a distinctly personal light. As the daughter of Chinese immigrants, Zia uses her experiences and research into the crisis to tell a unique yet universal story of family and survival. Zia, an award-winning journalist and Fulbright scholar, spent more than twelve years working on Last Boat Out of Shanghai. Join Zia in conversation with Alice Mong, the executive director of the Asia Society Hong Kong.

謝漢蘭的最新作品《離開上海的最後一艘船》從嶄新的角度呈現了1949年改革開放期間的難民潮景象。作為美國華裔移民的女兒,謝將她的個人經歷加以上海過渡危機的歷史研究,寫就了一個關於家庭與生存的動人故事。屆時,她會與亞洲協會香港中心行政總監孟淑娟進行對話。
