The great author reflects on a lifetime of writing, an unorthodox career, and her current work as a teacher and healer, which couldn’t be more relevant for our troubled times. Under a majestic oak in Reza Aslan and Jessica Jackley’s beautiful backyard, Maxine Hong Kingston talks with LARB Radio’s Tom Lutz and answers questions from an audience hanging on her every word. It was an evening rife with wisdom, charm, laughter, and confrontations with some of life’s greatest challenges; a true celebration of literature.
