From the venue:Best-selling author Amy Tan will be a first-time guest to the Georgia Center for the Book on Tues., Nov. 19, at Agnes Scott Collegeâ€™s Presser Hall. Sheâ€™ll be reading from her newest novel, The Valley of Amazement. This multi-generational story is set in old Shanghai, moving from courtesan houses to the International Settlement to a remote Chinese village. It also explores the connection between mothers and daughters, territory Tanâ€™s mapped profoundly in the past. Get there early, otherwise you may be out of Joy Luck.
