Mon, Feb. 28, 7:30pm
AUTHOR: Susan Conley
BOOK: The Foremost Good Fortune

DESCRIPTION:  When Susan Conley moves with her family to Beijing, she can't imagine how much their lives will change. Then she learns she has cancer. "the Foremost Good Fortune" is her wry and poignant memoir. Part travelogue, part cultural history, it's also a candid look at mortality and belonging as well as a celebration of family.
