I don’t know about you, but tomorrow night I am headed over to 3rd Place Books, Lake Forest Park, to hear Dori Jones Yang talk about her new book, Daughter of Xanadu.
Dori spent years in China, and is fluent in Mandarin, shares my Delacorte editor and is an all around nice person. The book jacket is stunning and learning a bit about the book inspired me to visit the Ghengis Khan/Mongolian exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum when we were in New York at Thanksgiving time. I also feel connected to the topic because Quinn’s good friend (well, mine too!) Jess spent 2 years in Mongolia in the Peace Corps and is back there working in the financial community.
The party starts at 7. See you there!
I loved this book! I met Dori at the Inside Story in October and we’ve got her and the book on Damsels this week. Have fun at Third Place!
Thanks for coming, Kirby! It was nice to see your smiling face at such a successful event. I love these bookstore talks, and Third Place Books is terrific!
