LUCY TAN will be discussing her debut novel "WHAT WE WERE PROMISED". This book is our originally scheduled book discussion club choice for the month of June. From a silk-producing village in rural China, up the corporate ladder in suburban America, and back again to the post-Maoist nouveaux riches of modern Shanghai, "What We Were Promised" explores the question of what we owe to our country, our families, and ourselves. According to Library Journal - "A novel of class, culture, and expectations; readers who enjoyed works like Kevin Kwan's Crazy Rich Asians will likely find Tan's surprising and down-to-earth tale an entertaining read".
