In a heartrending and deeply moving evening, two Asian-American literary luminaries, Qian Julie Wang and Charles Yu (Interior Chinatown) welcomed Wang’s incandescent debut, Beautiful Country--an essential American story about a family fracturing under the weight of invisibility, and a girl coming of age in the shadows, who never stops seeking the light. Wang and Yu discussed the emotional journey that led her to write this searing memoir and the hard-won process by which she realized it; the transformative powers of education, therapy, and the affection of animals; and the complex, fierce resilience of immigrant parents. A conversation—and book—not to be missed! (Recorded September 13, 2021)
