Bright Hong Kong hosted Charlotte Chu for the first time she has spoken publicly about her new novel, ‘Song of Praise for a Flower’.
A journey to discover family secrets led to the uncovering of a hidden manuscript from the parts of China most blighted by the Communist regime; the hidden villages that bore the brunt of Japanese occupation and the movements like the Great Leap Forward.
This true story has been released and Ms Chu has spoken about the author of the original manuscript and the story of torture and triumph of a woman defying cultural and political norms to survive China’s tumultuous 20th century.
Former Chief Secretary and LegCo member Anson Chan was among the luminaries joining the breakfast.
