Image of Yang HuangLocal author Yang Huang’s new novel My Old Faithful, a Juniper Prize winner, depict the lives of one family over thirty years in China and the United States. Richly textured narratives from the mother, the father, the son, and the daughters paint a nuanced portrait of family life, full of pain, surprises, and subtle acts of courage. 

Join us to hear about the inspirations for My Old Faithful as a family navigates the children’s adolescent years amidst vast social and economic change.

The Mercury News says: My Old Faithful is "a rich contemporary narrative of family dynamics and social upheaval."

San Francisco Chronicle says, “My Old Faithful zooms readers straight into the minds and hearts of each member of a middle-class family in a struggling, censored, restricted China....we feel ourselves becoming each protagonist in the course of each story.”

Yang Huang previously spoke at San Francisco Main Library about her debut novel Living Treasures, a Nautilus Book Award winner. Books will be available for purchase. The program is to be conducted in English and Chinese.
