Sold as a girl, then kidnapped by pirates and forced to marry their leader, she survived by her wits and became the most powerful pirate in history.  Her name was Zheng Yi Sao.  Or was it?  Author Larry Feign spent years separating fact from myth about this complex woman, and has pieced together a story more fascinating than fiction.  He’ll share the journey of discovery about the Chinese Pirate Queen that went into his new historical novel, The Flower Boat Girl, and show how sometimes the truth is better told through fiction than non-fiction.  The talk will be accompanied by a display of photos and illustrations.
