Fiction Reading: Yiyun Li - CANCELED
Junot Diaz writes, “Li is extraordinary ... a storyteller of the first order," and NPR says, simply, “Yiyun Li is a marvel.” Li is a winner of the PEN/Hemingway Award, MacArthur “Genius” Fellowship and many other awards and was named, by The New Yorker, one of 20 writers under 40 to watch. She is the author of four books, including the newly published "Kinder Solitude." Her work has been translated into over 20 languages. She teaches writing at the University of California, Davis, and lives in Oakland, Calif., with her husband and their two sons.
