Zhuqing Li | Book Signing & Lecture Event

Date:

Thursday, September 29, 2022 - 6:00pm

Mitchell Community College has the pleasure of hosting Zhuqing Li, professor of East Asian Studies and faculty curator of the Rockefeller Library at Brown University to discuss her most recent book: Daughters of the Flower Fragrant Garden: Two Sisters Separated by China’s Civil War during a lecture and book signing event next week, on September 29, at 6 p.m. in Shearer Hall, Statesville Campus.  This event is open to the public so if you currently teach a class in which you feel that yourself or your students might be interested, if you're a part of a book club, interested in world history, or looking for an insightful discussion (either through participation or active listening), consider joining Professor Li for her book lecture. Li’s book is described by The New York Times as “riveting,” and by The Wall Street Journal as “enduring.”  The Los Angeles Review of Books describes how Li’s "compelling” story “explores the momentous impact of momentary decisions on people’s lives in the context of massively disruptive historical events.” During the lecture, Professor Li will share photos while leading a discussion on topics of diversity, family, remembering and forgetting, and finding strength in the face of adversity. The Bookstore located in the Student Union on Campus will be open prior to the event (starting at 5:30 p.m.) for any interested individual who wants to purchase Li’s book. The Bookstore will still be open after the lecture, and guests can migrate to the Student Union for a reception meet-and-greet and book signing opportunity with the author.   5:30 Bookstore open for book purchases in Student Union6:00 Lecture and Book Discussion Start in Shearer Hall7:00 Reception and author meet and greet in the Student Union with opportunity for book signing  RSVP at mitchellcc.edu/Li
