On Thursday, March 11 at 7 p.m. the Hudson Library & Historical Society will host a live virtual streaming event with investigative journalist Amelia Pang, author of Made in China: A Prisoner, an SOS Letter, and the Hidden Cost of America’s Cheap Goods. Shelf Awareness notes, “Any reader with half a heart will be hard-pressed not to re-examine their own buying habits after reading this incredible, moving account.” 

In Made in China, Pang she reveals a closely guarded network of forced labor camps that power the rapid pace of American consumerism. Through extensive interviews and firsthand reportage, Pang shows us the true cost of America’s cheap goods and shares what is ultimately a call to action—urging us to ask more questions and demand more answers from the companies we patronize. A starred review in Publishers Weekly states, “Journalist Pang debuts with a vivid and powerful report on Chinese forced labor camps and their connections to the American marketplace. Cinematic . . . Engrossing and deeply reported, this impressive exposé will make readers think twice about their next purchase.” 

Amelia Pang is an award-winning journalist who has written for publications such as the New Republic. She has covered topics ranging from organic import fraud to the prevalence of sexual violence on Native American reservations. In 2017, the Los Angeles Press Club awarded her first place in investigative journalism for her undercover reporting on the exploitation of smuggled immigrants who are recruited to work in Chinese restaurants.  

Copies of Made in China will be available for purchase courtesy of the Learned Owl Book Shop. Registration for this program is required and a valid email address is required at time of registration. Participants will receive an email invitation to attend the program, hosted on Zoom, a day before the program begins.
