Join us for an evening with celebrated author Amy Tan, recipient of the Academy of Achievement Golden Plate Award, the Bay Area Book Reviewers Award, the Commonwealth Gold Award. Born in the U.S. to immigrant parents from China, Amy Tan rejected her mother’s expectations that she become a doctor and concert pianist. She chose to write fiction instead. Her novels are The Joy Luck Club, The Kitchen God’s Wife, The Hundred Secret Senses, The Bonesetter’s Daughter, and Saving Fish From Drowning, all New York Times bestsellers and recipients of various awards. She is also the author of a memoir, The Opposite of Fate; the short story Rules for Virgins published in e-book format (Byliner Original), and two children’s books, The Moon Lady and Sagwa, The Chinese Siamese Cat. Tan will be giving a reading of her work, followed by a question and answer session. There will be a booksigning after the QA. Books by Amy Tan will be available to purchase at the event.
