*On Thursday, October 6th at 7:00 pm the Newton Free Library presents an Author Talk with Gish Jen on Thank You, Mr. Nixon. Join the acclaimed, award-winning author of The Resisters, Gish Jen, for a talk on her collection of short stories, Thank You, Mr. Nixon. The book takes measure of the fifty years since the opening of China and its unexpected effects on the lives of ordinary people.
