In partnership with the Crow Collection of Asian Art
Amy Tan is acclaimed for her New York Times bestselling novels The Joy Luck Club, The Kitchen God’s Wife, The Hundred Secret Senses and The Bonesetter’s Daughter. She will share insights about the commonalities she’s found between fiction and museums and discuss her latest novel, The Valley of Amazement, a sweeping epic set in 1890-1940 San Francisco, Shanghai, and the valley in-between. The story revolves around three generations of women in the same family and a painting that gets passed down between them. With her characteristic insight and humor, Tan conjures a story of inherited trauma, desire and deception, and the power of love.
