San Francisco writer Kathryn Ma will give a reading from her debut novel “The Year She Left Us” at Eagle Harbor Book Company (157 Winslow Way E) at 3 p.m. Sunday, June 8.

“The Year She Left Us” introduces the Kongs, four unforgettable women in a Chinese-American family whose multi-generational saga is as emotionally raw as it is expertly crafted.

“Full of secrets and obsessed with identity, this story of an adopted Chinese girl comes closer to the complexity of things than any other account I have read,” said author Gish Jen. “It is moving and well told, and rings perfectly true.”
