Thank you, Nina and Oakland Public Library staff for spoiling us with your warm welcome and generous praises. So proud of our East Bay literary community, Laurel Bookstore, and wonderful readers. You truly inspire us!
I enjoyed a wonderful talk with the scientists and researchers at USDA. "Let us, Asian-Pacific Americans, tell our stories, with our lives, our work, our families, our values, and our volunteer effort. No one will tell our stories for us. It’s our historical opportunity as well as responsibility."
Yang Huang signs her novel Living Treasures. The time period is after Mao died and set during the reforms of Deng which deeply affected people's lives such as the one-child policy and the military repression of the student and worker protests around Tiananmen. It is the story of a woman finding her footing within a changing socialist country and the universal story of women choosing their path, love, and control of life and body.
Yang Huang released her new novel, a Bellwether Prize finalist and a Top Ten Historical Novel of 2014. Join us to hear about the inspirations for Living Treasures.
I will have a book talk and signing event for my readers and friends in the South Bay. Come see me on this Saturday afternoon.
