Amy Tan

Libraries Unbound, formerly Literary Voices, is an annual Friends of the Libraries fundraising dinner and author salon. Attendees are invited to dine at tables with notable authors, as well as with the University of Washington librarians. This year we are delighted to have the remarkable Amy Tan as our Keynote Speaker. Amy Tan is the author of several novels, children's stories, and memoirs, including The Joy Luck Club, The Kitchen God's Wife, and Where the Past Begins: A Writer's Memoir. Her children's story, The Chinese Siamese Cat, was the inspiration for the PBS animated series Sagwa.
