An Evening with Lisa See.
Monday, October 28, 2019
7:00 PM to 8:30 PM
In her many beloved bestsellers, starting with Snow Flower and the Secret Fan, Lisa See illuminates the strong bonds between women, families, communities, and specific regions of the world.
The Tea Girl of Hummingbird Lane narrates a powerful story about a family separated by circumstances, culture, and distance, painting an unforgettable portrait of a little-known region and its people.
The Island of Sea Women introduces readers to the fierce and unforgettable female free divers of Jeju Island and the dramatic history spanning from the 1930s to the after effects of the Korean War that shaped their lives.
How do cultural, familial, and/or religious traditions support or restrict human development? How are families and traditions a strength or impediment for individual characters? What makes a family? What are the most universal themes and questions a writer can address in the world today? Lisa See will respond to these and other questions in conversation with her Los Angeles area readers.
The evening begins promptly at 7 pm. Reflections, readings, and dialogue will be followed by book signing.
