About this event:
Yiyun Li returns to the Chicago Public Library to discuss her new novel, Kinder than Solitude. Elizabeth Taylor, Literary Editor for the Chicago Tribune, appears in conversation with Li. Gold Boy, Emerald Girl, Li's earlier book, was the One Book, One Chicago selection for spring 2012.
In Kinder than Solitude, Li masterfully moves a story of three childhood friends back and forth in time between America and China, telling an unforgettable story of friends whose lives are changed by a murder one of them may have committed. Brilliantly written, Kinder than Solitude resonates with provocative observations about human nature and life.
Li is a winner of the PEN/Hemingway, MacArthur “Genius” and many other awards.
Seating is limited and available first come, first served. Latecomers will be seated at the discretion of Library staff. Once capacity is reached, seating is no longer available. Books are available for purchase and the author will sign books at the conclusion of the program.
