After a couple postponements, the long-awaited Amy Tan author event is set to take place 2 p.m. on Sunday, March 20, 2022 at the Vacaville Performing Arts Theater. Originally scheduled for March 2020, the event was postponed due to the uncertain nature of whether social gatherings would be permitted or advisable.
A 2022 ticket is required for admittance to this event. All tickets have been claimed from Solano County Library branches.
The special event celebrates Women’s History Month. Amy Tan, the New York Times-bestselling author of “The Joy Luck Club” will share her memoir about life as a writer in “Where the Past Begins”. Tan will appear in conversation with local Solano writer, Suzanne Bruce.
Amy Tan is the author of “The Kitchen God’s Wife,” “The Bonesetter’s Daughter,” “The Valley of Amazement” and two children’s books. She was also the co-producer and co-screenwriter of the film “The Joy Luck Club.” Her essays and stories have appeared in numerous magazines and anthologies, and her work has been translated into 35 languages. Tan is the subject of the PBS produced documentary “Amy Tan: Unintended Memoir” which premiered at Sundance in 2021 and can be streamed on Netflix.
