In the Lap of the Gods - A book talk by author Li Miao Lovett on Saturday, March 19, 2:30-4pm

Bay Area author Li Miao Lovett will talk about and read from her novel In the Lap of the Gods. As the massive Three Gorges Dam rises, a villager reduced to scavenging saves an abandoned baby girl as his world disappears beneath the waters. In the Lap of the Gods reveals the dark side of modern China through the human costs of the Three Gorges Dam – a contemporary story in which the past is erased in the name of progress.

This program will be in English with a question period in English and Chinese. A book sale and signing will follow the program.
