Our event on 11 March 2019 at the FCC was a big success! Claire Chao, co-author of Remembering Shanghai: a Memoir of Socialites, Scholars, and Scoundrels with her mother, Isabel Sun Chao, fascinated us with backstory about the 10 year process of researching and writing her book as well as sharing valuable information about her decision to self publish and giving advice based on her ongoing marketing journey. Her beautiful book, a work of art as well as a terrific family saga, was available for signing. Claire is originally from Hong Kong, and the 3rd edition of her book was printed in Hong Kong by Regal Publishing. – Summary by Heather Diamond
