We are pleased to welcome virtually to campus Amy Tan, author of The Joy Luck Club. Her other novels include The Kitchen God’s Wife, The Hundred Secret Senses, The Bonesetter’s Daughter, Saving Fish from Drowning, and The Valley of Amazement, all New York Times bestsellers. She is also the author of a memoir, a book about writing, two children’s books, and numerous articles and short stories.

In 1993, The Joy Luck Club was made into a major motion picture, with Tan as co-producer and co-screenwriter. The film was added to the National Film Registry in 2020, and Tan is currently working on a sequel. She is also the subject of a documentary titled Amy Tan: Unintended Memoir, which debuted at Sundance in January 2021 and aired as part of PBS’s American Masters series. 

Amy Tan has been nominated for the National Book Award, the National Book Critics Circle Award, and the International Orange Prize, and she has won many awards including the Commonwealth Gold Award and the F. Scott Fitzgerald Award for Achievement in American Literature. Her essays and stories are found in hundreds of anthologies and textbooks. Her work has been translated into 35 languages.
