38. Compound Sorrows and a Touch of Magic: Chinese Historical Fiction
October 1, 2017 @ 10:29 am - 11:30 am
Janie Chang spins a richly textured tale of a thrice-unfortunate girl – the illegitimate Eurasian daughter of a Chinese concubine – who navigates the complexities and intrigues of early twentieth-century Shanghai as the ancient imperial dynasty is collapsing. Jialing learns to rely on her own intelligence, resilience, courage, with help from a surprising spirit ally, to find purpose, to thrive, and to find belonging. Join Janie and Barbara Bell as they delve into Janie’s insights on race, identity, women’s struggle for agency, and the inevitability of change.
10:30 – 11:30 am
