About this Event
The River Campus Libraries invites you to attend a lecture from C. Pam Zhang, author of How Much of These Hills is Gold. Zhang's book was longlisted for the 2020 Booker Prize and won the Asian/Pacific American Librarians Association Adult Fiction Prize.
In How Much of These Hills is Gold, Zhang reinvents the narrative of the American West by focusing on two newly orphaned children of immigrants. After the death of their parents, Lucy and Sam, alone in a land that refutes their existence, set off on an unforgettable journey of reckoning and resilience in the face of grief.
Zhang’s writing has appeared in various publications including The New York Times, The New Yorker, The Paris Review, and The Cut. Among her most widely shared pieces are the viral New York Times Modern Love essay, “Junk Food Was Our Love Language,” and a LitHub piece on writing in the time of grief.
