Shifting Perspectives description

In Mirandi Riwoe’s award-winning Stone Sky Gold Mountain, we experience Australia’s Gold Rush through the eyes of Chinese immigrants Ying and Lai Yue as family circumstances force the two siblings to seek their fortune far from home. Nguyễn Phan Quế Mai’s The Mountains Sing recounts Vietnam’s dark history of colonialism and war from the perspective of its people rather than its invaders. These illuminating and engaging novels provide new perspectives on familiar stories in ways as refreshing as they are important.

Please note that Nguyễn Phan Quế Mai will join us in the Garden via live streaming from Jakarta, Indonesia.
