Yiyun Li Discusses Novel Kinder than Solitude

Yiyun Li returns to the Chicago Public Library to discuss her new novel, Kinder than Solitude, at 6 p.m. Thursday, March 6 at the Harold Washington Library Center. Chicago Tribune Literary Editor Elizabeth Taylor joins her in conversation.

Li's Gold Boy, Emerald Girl 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 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.

The authors will sign books after the program; books will be for sale.

Seating is limited and is first come, first served. Late seating is at staff discretion.
