All Henrico Reads: An Evening with Author Jamie Ford
New York Times-bestselling author Jamie Ford will join us for a talk about our 2023 featured book, The Many Daughters of Afong Moy, as well as his other writings.
The Many Daughters of Afong Moy is a powerful exploration of Chinese-American history, inheritance, resilience, and family. Former poet laureate Dorothy Moy has long struggled with mental illness and, when she starts seeing signs in her daughter, undertakes an experimental treatment to address her inherited trauma. Connecting with her family history to improve her family's future, Dorothy uncovers many lifetimes of suffering, searching for a legacy of healing and love.
There will be prize drawings and a book signing after the event. No tickets or registration are required. For more information, latest news, and related events, visit henricolibrary.org/ahr.
