Delighted to be going back to One More Page in Arlington on Monday evening to talk about City of Devils and to do so with Marketplace’s Scott Tong (whose book A Village With My Name was a standout China title last year)…

Monday, July 16 @7PM

Historian Paul French in conversation w/ journalist Scott Tong (A VILLAGE WITH MY NAME) about French’s new book CITY OF DEVILS: THE TWO MEN WHO RULED THE UNDERWORLD OF SHANGHAI.
