Author Talk with Gish Jen -- The Girl at the Baggage Claim
Thursday September 14, 2017
7:00 PM until 9:00 PM
A provocative and important study of the different ideas Easterners and Westerners have about the self and society and what this means for current debates in art, education, geopolitics, and business. Is our mantra “To thine own self be true” or do we belong to something larger than ourselves?
The author of six previous books, Gish Jen has published short work in The New Yorker, The Atlantic Monthly, and dozens of other periodicals and anthologies and is the recipient of numerous awards.
The ongoing author series is offered by the Kingston Public Library in cooperation with the Kingston Council on Aging and the Kingston Public Library Foundation. The series is sponsored by WATD 95.9 FM Radio. Programs are held at the Kingston Council on Aging, 30 Evergreen Street and will last from 7:00 - 9:00 PM.
Westwinds Bookshop will provide copies of the books for sale and signing.
Light refreshments will be offered, and although the program is free, reservations are requested.
