Waiting by Ha Jin

Date and Time: May 5, 2021, 1:00 PM CT

Location: Wyandotte United Methodist Church, 7901 Oakland Ave, Kansas City
(view on google maps)

From the TALK series, Encountering Asia
Discussion Leader: Sandra Wiechert

Jin provides a moving, but disturbing view of Cultural Revolution-era China and human frailties. Lin Kong, a doctor whose duties separate him from his arranged-marriage wife, falls in love with Manna. Lin's wife won't agree to divorce. Thus he is "waiting" the 18 years before he can divorce without her consent.
