We Saw Lisa See

Asian FanThis past Monday, some of the Fairbanks Book Club members and I went to see author Lisa See at Rice University.  She is an excellent speaker!  She told some funny stories about her personal life and she talked some about her new book, “Dreams of Joy,” and about the movie that’s coming out on July 15 based on her book “Snow Flower and the Secret Fan.”  One of the interesting tidbits about “Dreams of Joy” was that Green Dragon Village was based on a real village that Amy Tan and Lisa stayed in for a while.  If all authors are as entertaining and informative as Lisa See, I recommend going to every author visit that you can!
