An Evening with Lisa See

Lisa See, author of Dreams of Joy.

In Dreams of Joy, best-selling novelist Lisa See returns to the themes of mother love, romantic love, and love of country she brought so brilliantly to life in Snow Flower and the Secret Fan, Peony in Love, and Shanghai Girls.

Join See as she discusses and reads from this captivating, just-released novel that continues the story of sisters Pearl and May from Shanghai Girls. Here Pearl embarks on a perilous quest in search of her strong-willed daughter Joy, who has fled Los Angeles for China in 1957 to seek her father and throw herself into the Communist cause.

The Los Angeles Times magazine calls Dreams of Joy "a stunningly researched epic about revolutionary-era China."

Book sale and signing follow the talk.

Presented in partnership with Blue Willow Bookshop and Office of Multicultural Community Relations, Public Affairs, Rice University.

Asia Society Texas Center is funded in part by grants from the City of Houston through the Houston Arts Alliance.
