Tomorrow: Cyberquestions with Ha Jin

Writer Carole Burns sends along this announcement:

Ha Jin, who won the National Book Award for his novel, Waiting, will join's Off the Page on Thursday, Nov. 29 at 1 p.m. ET to discuss his new novel, A Free Life.

Ask questions now or during the discussion:

Ha Jin joins us in the first of a series of Off the Page interviews to kick off the publication of a book based on these interviews: Off the Page: Writers Talk About Beginnings, Endings and Everything in Between, edited by host and writers Carole Burns and being published Dec. 10 by W.W. Norton.

A Free Life is Jin’s first novel set in America, and might be his most autobiographical. It not only explores the world of a recent Chinese immigrant (Jin immigrated to the U.S. in 1985), but also examines his protagonist’s desire and struggle to write in the language of his new home.

Please join Off the Page to ask Ha Jin about his latest novel and other literary topics.
