Anchee Min talked about her memoir Red Azalea, published by Knopf. It chronicles growing up in China during the Cultural Revolution. The book, first published in 1994, began as a collection of essays she wrote when she was first learning how to speak English. The author described her childhood under the rule of Mao Zedong and recounts how her involvement in propaganda films produced by the ruler’s wife, Madame Mao, resulted in her denouncement across the country. During her presentation, she was joined by her daughter, Lauryann Jiang, for a dance routine and dramatic performance. close
