Yiyun Li 

When: Wed., Feb. 24, 7 p.m. 2010
Price: free

Branded a counterrevolutionary, a former Red Guard has her vocal cords severed, then her kidneys extracted for transplant into a Communist Party official. Then she's shot -- and her execution is only the beginning of Yiyun Lee's grimly beautiful novel The Vagrants, which the award-winning author will discuss at A Great Good Place for Books (6127 La Salle Ave., Oakland) on Wednesday, Feb. 24. 7 p.m., free.
