Speaker

Eileen Cheng-yin Chow (Asian & Middle Eastern Studies)

APSI's Summer Book Club returns for 2023. The second book in the series is "The Book of Goose" by Yiyin Li, award-winning author of "Where Reasons End." Prof. Eileen Chow of AMES will lead us in a discussion of this epic exploration of fame, fortune, and terrible loss. APSI book club events are open to the Duke community and general public, so register to join us for the conversation! Registration: https://duke.is/9ewhg About the book (from the publisher): A magnificent, beguiling tale winding from the postwar rural provinces to Paris, from an English boarding school to the quiet Pennsylvania home where a woman can live without her past, The Book of Goose is a story of disturbing intimacy and obsession, of exploitation and strength of will, by the celebrated author Yiyun Li.
