In Inheritance (W.W. Norton & Co., 2004), Hong retraces her family’s history by piecing together the story of her mother and aunt—sisters once inseparable, now in a state of bitterness and estrangement. A provocative take on a story of desire, love and family strife, spanning seven decades from 1930’s China to 1990’s America.

Lan Samantha Chang graduated from Yale University, Harvard University, and the University of Iowa Writers’ Workshop. She is the author of Hunger: A Novella and Stories. In 2005, Chang was named the fifth director of Iowa Writers’ Workshop. She is the first woman and the first Asian American to hold the position.

7pm at the Workshop, booksigning, Birthday Cupcake reception, $5 suggested donation. Please RSVP at 212.494.0061.

Cosponsored by The Museum of Chinese in the Americas.
