Author David Joiner reads from his new book, Lotusland

Meet David Joiner, author of Lotusland, on Saturday, May 2 at 7:99 PM. Lotusland tells the story of a young American who falls in love with a talented Vietnamese painter. Lotusland dramatizes the power imbalances between Westerners and Vietnamese—in love and friendship, in the consequences of war, and in the pursuit of dreams. David Joiner was born in Cincinnati, Ohio and attended Earlham College, where he majored in Japanese studies. He earned his MFA from the University of Arizona, and he has been shuttling between the U.S., Vietnam, and Japan for all of his adult life. David currently lives in Saigon where he is working on a second novel set on the Mekong River in Vietnam and Cambodia. All library events are free and open to the public.
