Meet New York Times Bestselling Author Lisa See and discover her newest historical novel: “Lady Tan’s Circle of Women”
June 2023: A Note from Hope Katz Gibbs, founder, Inkandescent PR + Publishing Co. — Hello, and welcome to this month’s episode of Authors Between the Covers Show on the Inkandescent Radio Network and Inkandescent.tv. I’m deeply honored to be here with today’s guest, Lisa See; I was introduced to this New York Times bestselling author when my longtime freelance client, Costco magazine, assigned me to write about her latest book for the June 2023 issue of The Costco Connection.
It is the historical novel Lady Tan’s Circle of Women, and it is truly the most anticipated book for the summer of 2023. It is inspired by a true story of a woman physician in 15th-century China, and in the book, we learn how the main character breaks free from tradition and treats women and girls from every level of society. I can’t wait to hear all about this. But first and foremost, welcome, Lisa. I’m so excited to have you here.
Before we get into our Q&A, here’s a little background on Lisa. As I mentioned, Lisa is a New York Times bestselling author of a dozen books, including The Island of Sea Women, The Tea Girl of Hummingbird Lane, and Dreams of Joy, which debuted at number one.
She was born in Paris but grew up in Los Angeles. We are talking to her from there now. And she lived with her mother but spent a lot of time with her father’s family in Chinatown and says she has always been intrigued by stories that have been lost, forgotten, or deliberately covered up, whether in the past or now in the world today.
Lisa has been honored by the National Woman she has been honored as National Woman of the Year by the Organization of Chinese American Women. In 2001, she received the Organization of Chinese American Women honored her as a National Woman of the Year.
