Dori Jones Yang gave a talk at The Bookworm bookstore and cafe in Beijing, China, on November 3. She showed images and told stories about how she created a lover for Marco Polo in her historical novel, Daughter of Xanadu, as well as how she collaborated with Howard Schultz to write Pour Your Heart Into It: How Starbucks Built a Company One Cup at a Time. The audience asked many interesting questions for a lively discussion.
The Bookworm is a charming bookstore/bar/cafe in Beijing's Sanlitun District, and it specializes in English-language books. Highly recommended!
