Talk & Tour: Last Boat Out of Shanghai with Helen Zia
In the spring of 1949 in Shanghai, the question on everyone’s lips was “stay or go”? In her new book "Last Boat Out of Shanghai" journalist Helen Zia tells the dramatic, real-life stories of four who left on that legendary last boat out of Shanghai – including her own mother. Zia’s detailed research and extensive interviews with Benny, Annuo, Bing, and Ho bring to life the stories of the last of the generation to remember this forgotten exodus, from their lives in old Shanghai, the difficult decision to abandon their homeland, and their journeys into unknown, uncharted territory. Following the talk, Helen will join us on a visit some of the places featured in the book – and we’ll have the rare opportunity to see where these incredible stories unfolded – the lanes, homes, schools, clubs, even prisons. Talk and tour, 400rmb for non-members, including a drink and bus tour. Talk only, 150rmb.
