Anchee Min — the acclaimed Chinese-American author, painter, photographer and musician — will present the second annual Gregory and Rosalind Terry Lecture at 7 p.m. April 24 in the Information Commons at Loyola University Chicago’s Lakeshore campus, 6501 N. Kenmore Ave. The lecture is free and open to the public. A book signing will follow the presentation.
Min, born in Shanghai in 1957, has published a memoir, "Red Azalea," and six historical novels, the latest of which is "Pearl of China," a fictionalized account of a friendship between Nobel Prize-winning author and activist Pearl S. Buck and a young Chinese girl in a small south China town. "The Cooked Seed," her sequel memoir to "Red Azalea" is set for release on May 7 and describes Min’s move to America and her early years here.
