Book Talk: Edward Wong, At the Edge of Empire

When Edward Wong became Beijing bureau chief for The New York Times, he investigated his father’s mysterious past as a soldier in the People’s Liberation Army, while assessing the dream of a resurgent China himself. His new book, At the Edge of Empire, tells the story of a family and a nation spanning decades of momentous change. Join us at Asia Society in New York for a book talk with Edward Wong in conversation with The New Yorker writer Jiayang Fan.
