Best-selling novelist Monique Truong, author of The Book of Salt and Bitter in the Mouth, will be the headliner at a literary evening at California College of the Arts on Saturday, November 5 from 4-6 PM.
The Brooklyn-based Truong, whose latest book has just been published in paperback, has received numerous literary honors, including the New York Public Library Young Lions Fiction Award, the Stonewall Book Award-Barbara Gittings Literature Award, and the Association for Asian American Studies Poetry/Prose Award. Her novels have topped the favorites lists of New York Times, the Village Voice, Barnes & Noble and others.
Monique is an alumna of the Hedgebrook Writers in Residence Program. Hedgebrook is the only writers’ colony in the country exclusively devoted to women. A select forty writers are awarded fully-funded residencies each year, chosen from a competitive international pool of applicants. Hedgebrook is committed to promoting women’s voices.
