Sit in on a one-of-a-kind conversation with Iowa Writers’ Workshop director and renowned novelist Lan Samantha Chang (93MFA), who will chat with host Charity Nebbe, of Iowa Public Radio’s Talk of Iowa, and read from her most recent book, The Family Chao. Oprah Daily Insider recognized Chang as one of eight women writers changing the world—and The Family Chao appeared on Barack Obama’s 2022 Summer Reading List.

Prairie Lights Bookstore will sell copies of The Family Chao beforehand, and you will have an opportunity to ask questions after the reading. You also are invited to a book signing, on the second-floor gallery, at the end of the event.
