#FridayReads The Joy Luck Club by Amy Tan.
This is one of my favorite books, I must have read it at least ten times when I was in my late teens - early twenties. I havent read it in at least 15 years and I no longer have my original Spanish copy so I recently bought this lovely Penguin Classics edition.

On Tuesday evening, I was fortunate enough to have dinner with Amy Tan, the author of The Joy Luck Club, one of my favorite novels. She and some producers are optioning turning The Joy Luck Club into a tv series. I was chosen, along with 9 other Chinese American women, to speak about our experiences being a Millennial living in San Francisco. The Joy Luck Club, both the book and the film, had a huge impact on me growing up, especially because back then Asians were either typecast or underrepresented. To this day Asian are still underrepresented in mainstream media and in Hollywood. I read The Joy Luck Club when I was around 10, saw the film after, became obsessed, and basically devoured everything Amy has written since. So you can guess my excitement at being at the same dinner table with her, much less being graced with her presence. I was geeking out. It was such a memorable experience, one I will cherish for the rest of my life. We also received signed, personalized, copies of The Joy Luck Club at the end of our discussion. πŸ“–πŸ“š

#wcw is for Amy Tan! Exceptional author with such a talent for using language to capture a rich (and at times humorous) culture.

I did not lose myself all at once. I rubbed out my face over the years washing away my pain, the same way carvings on stone are worn down by water.

Starting a new read #thejoyluckclub πŸ“– Always lamented that I hadn't read it sooner, but I realized I'm glad I'm reading it now, older and for better or for worse, having loved and screamed at my own mother before #asianamericans #chineseamerican #mothers #daughters #reflections

Here's another shot of the Filoli Mansion in Woodside that my family visited yesterday for Father's Day. It is a historical mansion designed by the great American architect Willis Polk, known for its extensive collection of 17th & 18th century English antiques and its magnificent gardens! It has also been one of the many locations used in great films such as Heaven Can Wait, The Game, The Joy Luck Club, and most recently, The Master!
This is a shot of the kitchen that was sending me Wes Anderson's vibes all day.

Book 14, The Joy Luck Club. Always wanted to read this piece, and recently borrowed it from the same woman who lent me book 13. I'm so glad I finally gave it the time it deserves- Such a rich gathering of history, culture, life, death, sorrow. 10 out of 10 recommends. β™‘ #read. #book14of2017 #TheJoyLuckClub #JoyLuckClub #AmyTan #readin2017 #14thbookof2017

If you liked The Joy Luck Club by Amy Tan, then try The Namesake by Jhumpa Lahiri, or vice versa! These are women's voices that are not always represented and these stories are incredible and beautiful.

Another day at the pool and I can't help but read. However I'm not really enjoying this book. Many people like it, but I find my mind wondering. If y'all have it, what do you think about it? β€’
