Description

Jackson Fahnestock, Architect; Author, Shu Wei's Revenge

Award-winning author Jackson Fahnestock will be in conversation with Denise Michaud, co-chair of the Grownups forum, about how a health crisis precipitated his early retirement from an architectural career and led to his pursuits of art and writing. He will talk about his first novel, Shu Wei's Revenge, which was a distinguished favorite of the New York City Big Book Award and a 2015 semifinalist of the William Faulkner – William Wisdom Creative Writing Competition. Set in 1898 in San Francisco’s Chinatown, the book touches on several relevant themes. The discussion will be followed by a question and answer session.
