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.
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.
