The Tea Girl of Hummingbird Lane   By Lisa See

"The story begins small, plunging us into the immersive detail of a single grueling day picking tea with the young girl, Li-yan, her mother, A-ma, and the rest of their ethnic minority Akha family. What makes life bearable for the Akha is their belief system, which infuses every aspect of their daily lives. The e4full sweep of their practices is flawlessly embedded in See's prose. The hardships that confront Li-yan in her life are as compelling as the fog-shrouded secret groves where she and her mother cultivate a special healing tea. Lisa See covers Chinese adoption, the international fine tea market and modern Chinese migration to the United States. A lush tale infused with clear-eyed compassion, this novel will inspire reflection, and discussion.

Lunch is available at 12 noon in the Weiss, please make reservations for lunch at the front desk. Book is available at Barnes and Noble Wilkes/Kings Bookstore on S. Main Street Wilkes-Barre. Mention the JCA to receive your discount.
