When the Fairbanks Library Book Club was looking for something to read for Asian/Pacific-American Heritage Month in May of 2008, one of our staff members recommended “Snow Flower and the Secret Fan ” by Lisa See .
They liked it so much that they wanted to read the sequel, “Dreams of Joy ,” which just came out May 31, for our June book club meeting.
Coincidentally, Lisa See happens to be appearing in Houston on the very night of our next meeting, Monday, June 20. She will be at the Fondren Library at Rice University at 7:00 p.m. for a book signing. See the Blue Willow Book Shop site for more information.
