Award-winning author Amy Tan spoke to a receptive audience last night at Ohio University's Templeton-Blackburn Alumni Memorial Auditorium.
Tan, best-known for her novels The Joy Luck Club, The Bonesetter's Daughter and Saving Fish from Drowning, told stories about her childhood, including her complex relationship with her mother and her teen years spent living in Europe.
Audience members asked questions about her writing process, aspects of The Joy Luck Club and her upbringing and family life. Afterwards, Tan signed copies of her books in the lobby.
Tan's talk was part of Ohio University's Kennedy Lecture Series.
