The June 26 book selected for the book club is Saving Fish from Drowning by Amy Tan. Tan recently appeared in a film, "Unintended Memoir," (PBS) about her life and career, including personal photos, home movies, animation, and interviews. Many of her writings were inspired by Tan's experiences; this novel, her sixth work, is about a group of American tourists who travel to China and Burma. We celebrate author Amy Tan in May, which is Asian American/Pacific Island Heritage month.
