NOVELIST ANCHEE MIN FEATURED AT CLEVELAND PUBLIC LIBRARY’S WRITERS & READERS SERIES

 
CLEVELAND, OH – Acclaimed author and speaker Anchee Min will be featured as part of Cleveland Public Library’s (CPL) Writers & Readers series on Sunday, May 1, 2011 at 2:00 pm. in the Louis Stokes Wing Auditorium, East 6th and Superior.
“We are honored to bring Anchee Min back to Cleveland Public Library’s Writers and Readers series. Her passionately crafted, thought provoking novels prompt readers to embrace historical fiction in a fresh and profound way,” said Felton Thomas, executive director of CPL.
Once treated as an outcast in China, Min endured many hardships before arriving in the United States in 1984, where she taught herself English by watching episodes of “Sesame Street.” Today, her novels have received encouraging reviews from Booklist and The New York Times Book Review. Red Azalea, Min’s frank memoir of growing up in Communist China during the 1960s and ‘70s, was hailed in The New York Times Book Review as a “powerful political as well as literary statement” and was named one of the Notable Books for 1994. Her most recent novel, Pearl of China, was released in 2010, and features the historical figure of Nobel-prize winning author, Pearl S. Buck, as the center of a story of friendship amidst violent civil war and later Communist regime. A sought-after speaker, Min last visited CPL in 2005. Photo credit: Naishi Min
