Join us in a conversation with author Tom Lin (PO ‘18) as we engage in a conversation about his experience as an international writer and his debut novel—a western with supernatural elements set in the 1860s. The Thousand Crimes of Ming Tsu is about a Chinese American assassin who pursues vengeance after railroad barons kidnap his lover and conscript him into constructing the Central Pacific Railroad. Media has praised the story’s subversion of the white-centric perspective of traditional westerns and its exploration of identity. The novel was awarded the 2022 Andrew Carnegie Medal for Excellence in Fiction, making Lin the youngest Carnegie winner. Lunch reception to follow.
