06.04.2019 | An Evening With Rebecca Makkai & Jean Kwok | Free

June 4, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Categories: Literature & Poetry


Left Bank Books and the St. Louis County Library welcome best-selling authors Rebecca Makkai and Jean Kwok, who will sign and discuss their books, “The Great Believers” and “Searching For Sylvie Lee”.

“Searching for Sylvie Lee” is a poignant and suspenseful drama that untangles the complicated ties binding three women—two sisters and their mother—in one Chinese immigrant family and explores what happens when the eldest daughter disappears, and a series of family secrets emerge, from the New York Times bestselling author of Girl in Translation.

In “The Great Believers”, the two intertwining stories of Yale and Fiona take us through the heartbreak of the eighties, the carnage of the AIDS epidemic, and the chaos of the modern world, as they both struggle to find goodness in the midst of disaster.

This event is free and open to the public.
