The Carroll and Madison Public Library Foundation is thrilled to announce that Lisa See will join us this year!
In her work, See has always been intrigued by stories that have been lost, forgotten, or deliberately covered up in the country of her great-grandfather, China. For Snow Flower and the Secret Fan, she traveled to a remote area of China—where she was told she was only the second foreigner ever to visit—to research the secret writing invented, and used privately by women for over a thousand years.
Lisa See brilliantly illuminates the strong bonds between women, romantic love, and love of country and our world is richer for it.
Please mark your calendars for Sunday, May 20, 2018. And check back for more author announcements in the coming days.
