*CANCELED* Reading and Conversation with Gish Jen
*Due to precautions against the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19), this event has been canceled.*
Gish Jen’s new novel, The Resisters (February 2020), invites the reader into a not-so-distant dystopian future. In AutoAmerica, water covers half the land and the internet has become the face of a surveillance state.
Jen’s previous works include The Girl at the Baggage Claim: Explaining the East-West Culture Gap (2017), Tiger Writing: Art, Culture, and the Interdependent Self (2013), Love Wife (2004), and Mona in the Promised Land (1996). Her short stories have appeared in the New Yorker, the Atlantic Monthly, and dozens of other periodicals and anthologies. Jen is a fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences; the recipient of honorary doctorates from Williams College and Emerson College; and a recipient of Lannan, Fulbright, Radcliffe, Guggenheim, and National Endowment for the Arts fellowships.
