Stories & Books by Carole Louie
Always come back to THE CENTER.
You never know where your search into the past will guide you. Carole's desire to know more about her Chinese roots led her to the gates of the Forbidden City and to Yangshi Lei, the architects who built one fifth of China's World Heritage Sites. Relive the adventures of eight generations who served eight Qing Dynasty emperors and how they saved their work from destruction to leave a legacy that touches the world.
Ever since I read Lisa See's book On Gold Mountain, I have been an avid fan. Like Lisa See, even though I may not look Chinese to some folks, I FEEL Chinese. She inspired me to dig deeper for my Chinese roots. So, after years of corresponding with her via email, I am pleased to announce that she will join us for a book discuss about her latest book which is another great read. Why didn't I think of this sooner?
If you haven't read it yet, you've got time before the Book Club Discussion. I hope you will join us.
