Join us for a book discussion of "The Woman Warrior: Memoirs of a Girlhood Among Ghosts" by Maxine Hong Kingston. New members always welcome!  Please check with library staff for location or Zoom link.  Titles subject to change based on availability.

"Throughout her childhood, Maxine Hong Kingston listened to her mother's mesmerizing tales of a China where girls are worthless, tradition is exalted and only a strong, wily woman can scratch her way upwards. Growing up in a changing America, surrounded by Chinese myth and memory, this is her story of two cultures and one trenchant, lyrical journey into womanhood.

Complex and beautiful, angry and adoring, Maxine Hong Kingston's The Woman Warrior is a seminal piece of writing about emigration and identity. It won the National Book Critics Circle Award in 1976 and is widely hailed as a feminist classic." -- Amazon.com
