Ethical Dilemmas Book Discussion Series Continues

Ha Jin's Waiting

Book CoverWaiting by Ha Jin


The central character of this tale is the physician Lin Kong, who is torn by his love for two women. One belongs to the New China, the Cultural Revolution, and the other to the traditions of his family’s village. Is it possible to work through the conflict between the individual and society in China, between the human heart and shifting politics, and retain one’s humanity?
 
Phil Burnham, who teaches at George Mason University, will once again be our discussion leader -- on Jan. 10 from 7 p.m. to  8:45 p.m. 

We thank the Friends of Cleveland Park for their continuing generous financial support for the series.
