Da Chen speaks to Prep students
Posted 10/24/2012 05:40PM

Da Chen, New York Times best-selling author, shares life and writing with Prep students

Da Chen was invited to speak to Fairfield Prep students as part of the English department’s initiative to engage young readers through the Living Author Series. Chen has published seven works of fiction and creative nonfiction. His books are taught in many middle schools and high schools throughout the country. The New York Times bestselling memoir Colors of the Mountain is part of our sophomore curriculum. Mr. Chen has appeared on CNN International, Talk of the Nation, and Weekend Edition among other venues. His newest novel, My Last Empress, out this month from Crown Publishing, is already garnering high praise. The speaking event was held at the Quick Center for the Arts on October 23, and was coordinated by Jamie Chesbro, English teacher and writer. Afterward, Da Chen autographed books with unique Chinese calligraphy. Watch video highlights of his moving presentation.
