CCCI invites Yiyun Li, award-winning author, to discuss her literary life with roots in China

When Yiyun Li was in Ithaca in February, she spoke to the CCCI audience about writing in her adopted language of English. In the May 8 issue of The New Yorker, Li’s story “A Small Flame” elegantly depicts the personal histories and relationships of people living between China and the U.S. The intimate acts of adoption and replacement again appear here as crucial tropes of the story. With literature’s unique capability to put in play the textures and complexities of living, the piece has plenty to teach us about our contemporary world, China, and people who live in both.
