Join us for an engrossing talk and question/answer session with Yang Huang, discussing her most recent, award-winning novel MY GOOD SON. The San Francisco Chronicle wrote that MY GOOD SON is about "parental love...and the radical act of writing about ordinary life," and in their review The New York Times notes Huang's ability to realistically render"the generational push-pull of family life." MY GOOD SON won the gold medals for NautilusIPPY (LGBTQ+ Fiction), and IBPA Benjamin Franklin Book Awards (Fiction, LGBTQ+), and is a Lambda Literary Awards Finalist (Gay Fiction). It has a strong LGBTQ+ focus, with a heartfelt and humorous coming out story that changes everyone. 

Yang Huang previously spoke at the San Francisco Main Library about her award-winning novels MY OLD FAITHFUL and LIVING TREASURES. Books available to purchase after the book talk. The program is to be conducted in English and Chinese. 

華裔作家Yang Huang 討論她最新獲獎小說 MY GOOD SON。 《舊金山紀事報》寫道: MY GOOD SON 是關於“父母的愛……以及書寫平凡生活中內在張力”,《紐約時報》在他們的評論中指出,Yang Huang 真實地呈現家族觀念在人們家庭生活中的牽制“。 《我的棒儿子》赢得了三个图书金奖:NautilusIPPY (LGBTQ+ Fiction)IBPA Benjamin Franklin Book Awards (LGBTQ+)。里面谈到一个裁缝爸爸推“熊孩子”上大学,并帮助美国男生向他的父母出柜的故事,有喜剧色彩也感人至深。如何接受孩子的天分和内动力,是华裔父母需要思考的问题。

Yang Huang 此前曾在舊金山主圖書館討論過她的獲獎小說MY OLD FAITHFUL 和 LIVING TREASURES。書籍講座後會有簽名會。該活動將以英文和中文進行。
