Vancouver launch The Lost Century, with Rita Wong


Wednesday April 10, 2024    
7:00 - 8:00 pm PDT


Vancouver Public Library - Central Branch
350 W. Georgia Street, Vancouver, BC

Why is what we know of the past so full of holes?

In her recent novel The Lost Centuryaward-winning author Larissa Lai takes us to World War II Hong Kong and uses the back-drop of the island’s invasion by the Japanese to tell a story of colonialism, resistance, and the love of a family–against all odds.

Join Larissa Lai in conversation with Rita Wong as they discuss a work that has been called “a marvel: tender, funny, beautiful, powerful and even transcendent.”

This event is part of Uplift Asian, a programming series at VPL designed to celebrate Asian cultures and perspectives, and push back against discrimination in our communities.
