LENORA CHU, author of Little Soldiers: An American Boy, a Chinese School, and the Global Race to Achieve

September 23, 2017 | 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

The Boston Public Library is pleased to host journalist LENORA CHU for a rare glimpse inside China’s insular education system. In her book, Little Soldiers, she uses her parenting journey to launch a wider investigation into whether China’s educational methods are something to which the West should aspire.

Chu is an award-winning journalist and a contributing writer with CNNMoney.com. Her articles have appeared in the New York Times, the Christian Science Monitor, and PRI’s The World. Chu holds degrees from Stanford University and Columbia’s Graduate School of Journalism and speaks Mandarin.
