Saturday, June 23, 2018 - 6:00pm to 7:00pm

When a calamity suddenly halts the usual flow of daily events at the family-run Beijing Duck House in Rockville, Maryland, the owner, his family, and the staff are forced to pause and assess what they’ve done and where they go from here. For Jimmy Han, this may be the chance to open his own upscale establishment. For his brother, it might be the time to heal a festering generational rift with his daughter. Meanwhile, the Hans’ longtime employees are caught between competing loyalties when they find that their children are implicated in the restaurant’s crisis. Warm and insightful, this eagerly awaited debut novel vividly shows what happens when back-of-house and front-of-house fall apart.
