About the event

WOMEN ON THE MOVE QIAN JULIE WANG

SOUND ON/OFF

Few debut books instantly hit both the New York Times and NPR bestseller lists. And this one was written on an iPhone on the subway while the author commuted to her job as a lawyer!

But Qian Julie Wang’s Beautiful Country is an exquisitely written memoir about coming of age in the shadows of New York, an undocumented girl focused on moving toward light even while her family fractures under the weight of poverty and invisibility. Timely and passionately, she deftly balances memory against future, love against hunger and joy against despair.

Join this Yale Law School graduate — now a managing partner at Gottlieb & Wang, where she advocates for education and civil rights — to hear about revealing the most intimate family stories in print, finding her place in America and discovering her personal power.

Sponsored by:
​The Samuel I. Newhouse Foundation Authors’ Series, honoring Theodore and Caroline Newhouse and Susan Newhouse.

In partnership with:
