Program Description

Event Details

Bird Gardner lives quietly with his father in a society ferociously intent on preserving "American culture" after years of violence and economic chaos, with books that are seen as unpatriotic suppressed and the children of dissidents, especially those of Asian origin, sometimes forcibly relocated from their homes. Now he wants to find his mother, a banned Chinese American poet who left the family when he was nine years old. Author Celeste Ng has created an exquisite story of unbreakable family bonds, lifesaving storytelling (and seemingly omniscient librarians!).
