November 20th at 1:00 p.m. – Lunch 'N Books: The Tea Girl of Hummingbird Lane by Lisa See
Join us on November 20 at 1:00 p.m. as we discuss The Tea Girl of Hummingbird Lane by Lisa See. Li-yan is a member of the Akha hill tribe whose way of life is still tied to the land. She grows up picking tea leaves each season with her family and lives without electricity or running water in a hut. Set to follow in her mother’s path as a midwife, Li-yan works hard in school hoping to be the first in her village to qualify for upper level schooling that would open up other possibilities. Fate however intervenes through pregnancy, and two different men destined to change her life, one through love, the other through the business of tea.
