Diwali is a festival of lights celebrated throughout India and among Indians worldwide. Hindus, Jains, and Sikhs commemorate different auspicious events, but each is a moment of victory of good over evil, and light replacing darkness. The traditions of this holiday come to life with the opportunity to try your hand at rangoli sand painting, or put your dance skills to the test with traditional Indian dance lessons.

Arts & Letters Live in partnership with the Crow Collection of Asian Art presents Amy Tan
Jan 28 @ 7:30 pm – 8:30 pm
Arts & Letters Live in partnership with the Crow Collection of Asian Art presents Amy Tan @ First United Methodist Church of Dallas

Bestselling author Amy Tan will discuss her newest novel, The Valley of Amazement, a sweeping epic spanning from San Francisco to Shanghai in the years 1890-1940. It transports readers from the collapse of China’s last imperial dynasty to the beginning of the Republic and recaptures the lost world of old Shanghai through the inner workings of courtesan houses and the lives of the foreigners living in the International Settlement, both erased by World War II. It also tells the tale of a painting that is passed down through generations of women in the same family. Despite vast differences in their upbringing, culture, and circumstances, each of the women is drawn to discover the meaning of the painting and the unknown histories of their mothers. Imbued with Tan’s characteristic insight and humor, The Valley of Amazement conjures a story of inherited trauma, desire and deception, and the power and obstinacy of love.

“Fiction and museums both provoke memories, taking people back in time. . . . That’s also what I want to do with my stories.”

—Amy Tan
