The Weinstein JCC is proud to host Qian Julie Wang, in conversation with Laura Pho, on Thursday, Feb. 10 at 7p.m., on Zoom as part of its annual ReelAbilities Diversity and Inclusion Festival.
Qian Julie, debut author of Beautiful Country, A Memoir, was born in Shijiazhuang, China. At age 7, she moved to Brooklyn, New York, with her parents.
For five years thereafter, the three lived in the shadows of undocumented life in New York City.
Qian Julie’s first book is a poignant literary memoir that follows the family through those years, as they grappled with poverty, manual labor in sweatshops, lack of access to medical care, and the perpetual threat of deportation.
An incandescent memoir from an astonishing new talent, Beautiful Country is a New York Times Best Seller and a Today Show #READWITHJENNA book club pick that puts readers in the shoes of an undocumented child living in poverty in the richest country in the world.
