Featured writer: Lindsay Wong
In celebration of #BlackHistoryMonth, I'm featuring a BIPOC writer for every day of February. And as a special treat for subscribers to my newsletter, every week one lucky reader will win a copy of a book from each of that week's seven featured writers. This week's draw will be announced right here on the blog. Not a subscriber yet? Scroll to the bottom of this page, and sign up!
Lindsay Wong is the best-selling author, most recently, of MY SUMMER OF LOVE AND MISFORTUNE, the story of Iris Wang, a young Chinese American woman who feels she's missing the mark with either of these identities. When her parents ship Iris off to Beijing to reconnect with her family, mayhem ensues.
But while Iris may feel that she has a weakness for 'terrible decisions and terrible boys', her creator is clearly doing just fine. When she's not writing darkly comic novels, Lindsay Wong is currently spending her time as the writer in residence at the University of the Fraser Valley, here in British Columbia. She is also the author of a memoir featuring one of my top three favourite titles ever: THE WOO WOO: How I Survived Ice Hockey, Drug-Raids, Demons, and My Crazy Chinese Family. This book is a blockbuster, sweeping best-of and best-seller lists across North America when it debuted. I can't wait to read it -- and you can join me!
This weekend I'll draw the name of a lucky newsletter subscriber, who will win your choice of Lindsay's books, along with books from Otoniya Juliane Otok Bitek, Alisha Rai, Alyssa Cole, Chantal Gibson and two others.
