Join Lethbridge Public Library as we host Janie Chang, author of The Library of Legends, for an author interview via Zoom. Chang is a novelist who writes historical fiction with a personal connection, drawing from family history and ancestral stories. She is the author of two previous novels: Three Souls and Dragon Springs Road.

Her latest novel is The Library of Legends. China, 1937. When Japanese bombs begin falling on the city of Nanking, nineteen-year-old Hu Lian and her classmates at Minghua University are ordered to flee. Lian and a convoy of students, faculty and staff must walk 1,000 miles to the safety of China's western provinces, a journey marred by the constant threat of aerial attack. And it is not just the refugees who are at risk; Lian and her classmates have been entrusted with a priceless treasure: a 500-year-old collection of myths and folklore known as the Library of Legends.
