Yan Li Public Talk and Reading on March 8th: From Daughters of the Red Land to Lily in the Snow

Yan LiHaving spent most of her life immersed in the cultures of Beijing, and later Canada in pursuit of graduate studies, Professor Yan Li has acquired multiple layers of perspective in her work. Li’s writing has appeared in both Chinese and English, and her latest novel, Lily in the Snow, is an insightful exploration of intergenerational conflict. The protagonist, Lily, is a single Chinese immigrant mother living in Mapleton, Ontario, who faces unique challenges when her mother comes to visit.

Her award-winning work includes Married to the West Wind (Mirror Books, Hong Kong, 1998 and Arts and Literature Press, Beijing, 2000), and Daughters of the Red Land (Sister Vision Press, Toronto, 1995).
