Spend an afternoon with Author JJ Chen Henderson reading from her book Girl at Dawn. Reading will be followed with a short Q&A and book signing.

Girl at Dawn tells the story of a young Chinese woman, Amei, who meets an American in China. Luke’s sudden appearance haunts her mother, whose mysterious past is entangled with him. Unpredictably, Amei falls in love with him; her journey shockingly unravels her true identity and unlikely heritage. Set in the dawning era of China’s awakening to the world, the novel unveils a landscape both personal and political.

 “A spellbinding story of mothers and daughters, of passions and taboos, of history and heritage. Vivid and haunting. . . [it] reminds us that the lies we tell for love create powerful legacies of their own.” – Anne Sanow, author
