Join us for our June edition of Readings from Oconomowaukee. This month will feature author Susie Luo in conversation with Daniel Goldin and Lisa Baudoin for Luo's novel Paper Names- an unforgettable story about the long shadows of our parents, the ripple effect of our decisions and the ways in which our love transcends difference.


About the book: 
An unexpected act of violence brings together a Chinese-American family and a wealthy white lawyer in this propulsive and sweeping story of family, identity and the American experience--for fans of Jean Kwok, Mary Beth Keane and Naima Coster. 
Set in New York and China over three decadesPaper Names explores what it means to be American from three different perspectives. There's Tony, a Chinese-born engineer turned Manhattan doorman, who immigrated to the United States to give his family a better life. His daughter, Tammy, who we meet at age nine and follow through adulthood, and who grapples with the expectations of a first generation American and her own personal desires. Finally, there's Oliver, a handsome white lawyer with a dark family secret and who lives in the building where Tony works. A violent attack causes their lives to intertwine in ways that will change them forever. Taut, panoramic and powerful.
