On Wednesday, March 20, 6:30 pm at the Malden Public Library, join Mayor Gary Christenson for a lively discussion of this year’s Malden Reads selection, Tea Girl of Hummingbird Lane by Lisa See.
The event will begin with a special presentation by Shuenn Liou, a member of the Bunang tribe, an ethnic minority in the Yunnan province of China, where the story of Li-yan and her family is based. She will give an audio visual presentation on the people of that area, the geography, culture, history, economy, and how the region and people have been affected by the political events of China in recent history.
Shuenn has read the book and will stay for the discussion following the presentation. The Chinese Culture Connection will be serving tea. We hope you can join us for this special event.
To sign up, email email@example.com and make sure you specify “Mayor’s Book Discussion” in the subject line. This event is co-sponsored by Malden Reads and the Chinese Culture Connection.
