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.
