“From the bustling heart of Beijing, to a fast-food restaurant in Chicago, to the barren expanse of Inner Mongolia, A Thousand Years of Good Prayers reveals worlds both foreign and familiar, with heartbreaking honesty and in beautiful prose.”

From Bookjacket, A Thousand Years of Good Prayers

The stories in this collection, set in China and among Chinese-Americans in the United States, will give you insights into the lives of people  in one of the most important of the new “global cultures”. Join several Chinese JSRCC students in a book discussion led by Hong Wu of Parham Campus Library. Learn both about the author, Yiyun Li, and the challenges faced by contemporary Chinese and Chinese-Americans.

Where and When: Thursday, April 7 at The Gallery, downstairs in Georgiadis Hall, Parham Campus from 5-6:30 p.m. (New time!)

Refreshments will be provided.

Around the World Through Books is a free community event sponsored by the Multicultural Enrichment Council of JSRRC.

Hope to see you there!
