Deborah Fallows came to discuss her book Dreaming in Chinese: Mandarin Lessons in Life, Love, and Language in the UC Theatre yesterday afternoon. Fallow's book was selected for the 2012 Freshman Summer Reading Program. During the presentation she spoke about how her love of language allowed her to engage with and understand the Chinese people. She encouraged the audience to find understanding of another culture through their own passions.

The library has Fallows' book, as well as several other works about Chinese or China available to checkout or read online. To find out more checkout our Research Guide on Dreaming in Chinese or come by the third floor display cases between now and September 2nd.

If you want to check out a book from the display case ask someone at the circulation desk on the 2nd floor of the library.
