I am proud of all of my books, but I am especially fond of my second book, What the Zhang Boys Know, which was published by Press 53 ten years ago this month. The book received good reviews and won the Library of Virginia Literary Award for Fiction, an amazing honor.
To celebrate this milestone, I have a couple of events planned. First, on Wednesday, October 19, from 6:00-8:00 pm, I’m hosting a party at Accordia, a new wine bar at 114 E. Beverley St. in Staunton. Cheese and chocolate will be provided, wine and books (!) will be available for purchase, and there will be door prizes.
If you aren’t local to Staunton, you can still help me celebrate. Press 53, the publisher of What the Zhang Boys Know, is hosting an online event on Tuesday, October 25, at 7:00 pm as part of the press’s anniversary month. Publisher Kevin Morgan Watson and I will be discussing the book and talking about my other books and answering questions from the audience. Register for the event here.
