Qin Sun Stubis — Once Our Lives - in conversation with Mark Stubis — at Conn Ave

Upcoming Event
Saturday, June 10, 2023 - 3:00pm

Once Our Lives is the true story of four generations of Chinese women and how their lives were threatened by powerful and cruel ancient traditions, historic upheavals, and a man whose fate - cursed by an ancient superstition - dramatically altered their destinies. The book takes the reader on an exotic journey filled with luxurious banquets, lost jewels, babies sold in opium dens, kidnappings by pirates, and a desperate flight from death in the desert - seen through the eyes of a man for whom the truth would spell disaster and a lonely, beautiful girl with three identities.

Qin Sun Stubis, author of the historical memoir, Once Our Lives, is a Chinese-American writer in the Washington, D.C. area. She is a longtime newspaper columnist and writes poems, essays, short stories and original Chinese tall tales inspired by traditional Asian themes.

She will be in discussion with her husband, former Newsweek writer, nonprofit executive, and National Humanitarian Award winner Mark Stubis.
