Book Discussion: “Balzac And The Little Chinese Seamstress” By Dai Sijie says
This February, Holocaust Museum Houston librarian Maria Harris facilitates a discussion of “Balzac and the Little Chinese Seamstress” by Dai Sijie. At the height of the Chinese Cultural Revolution, two young boys are sent to the country for "reeducation" at a remote mountain village, where their lives take an unexpected turn when they meet the beautiful daughter of a local tailor and stumble upon a forbidden stash of Western classics in Chinese translations. Admission is free, but advance registration is requested. To RSVP online, visit www.hmh.org/RegisterEvent.aspx. Registration is limited to 12 participants, but the discussion may be offered on a second date. If registration is full, contact library@hmh.org to add your name to an interest list.
