Highly recognized author and Bay Area resident Amy Tan will be coming to Santa Clara on Jan. 17.
Tan will be hosting a conversation and book signing at the Mayer Theater at 7:30 p.m. Her novel, “The Valley of Amazement,” will soon be released to the public and will mark her seventh book published.
Carrying on the tradition of her previously published books, “The Valley of Amazement” will follow along the prior themes of her other books: familial relationships, differences in generations, and historical ties.
Tan’s career began in 1989 when her critically acclaimed novel, “The Joy Luck Club,” was published. Her most recent book was published in 2005, so her new book will be the time in eight years.
Within her lifetime, she has held titles as an author, lecturer, speaker, co-producer and co-screenwriter, all involving her literary works. Tan currently resides in both San Francisco and New York.
