Thrilled to Meet Madeleine Thien on Opening Night!
On Opening Night of the LiterASIAN Festival, I was thrilled to get a chance to chat with Madeleine Thien, the 2016 Giller Prize winner for her seminal book Do Not Say We Have Nothing! Then this afternoon, at the end of the Panel that I took part in, I had another chance to talk to her! She is such an understated, modest, sincere and warm person. It was my honor and privilege to have met her in person.
