An Evening with Amy Tan
The Ohio State University's Office of Minority Affairs and the Greater Columbus Arts Council present this reading and lecture with award-winning author Amy Tan as part of The President and Provost's
2008-09 Diversity Lecture & Cultural Arts Series and The Big Read Columbus.
Tan reads from her classic novel The Joy Luck Club--the focus of the first 2009 Big Read program in Columbus--and discusses her work as part of a visit that marks the culmination of a month of citywide events that have encouraged the entire community to read and discuss the same book.
Born in America to immigrant parents from China, Tan is currently writing a new novel. In addition to The Joy Luck Club, her novels include The Kitchen God's Wife, The Hundred Secret Senses, The Bonesetter's Daughter, and Saving Fish from Drowning. She served as coproducer and coscreenwriter for the film adaptation of The Joy Luck Club.
This event is free but ticketed. Call the Wexner Center ticket office (614) 292-3535 to reserve your ticket.
Cosponsored by Ohio State University's Office of Minority Affairs, the Greater Columbus Arts Council, and the Wexner Center.
