Guy Gavriel Kay
Saturday, January 18, 7:00 p.m.
In his critically acclaimed novel Under Heaven, Guy Gavriel Kay told a vivid and powerful story inspired by China’s Tang Dynasty. Now, the international bestselling and multiple award-winning author revisits that invented setting four centuries later with an epic of prideful emperors, battling courtiers, bandits and soldiers, nomadic invasions, and a woman battling in her own way, to find a new place for women in the world – a world inspired this time by the glittering, decadent Song Dynasty.
Guy Gavriel is the author of eleven previous novels and a volume of poetry. He won the 2008 World Fantasy Award for his novel Ysabel and the International Goliardos Prize, and is a two-time winner of the Aurora Award. His works have been translated into more than twenty-five languages and have appeared on bestseller lists around the world.
