Thursday, February 7, Central Library’s Madison Room, 201 West Mifflin Street, 7 p.m.  Public reading by Ha Jin, the National Book Award-winning author of Waiting. Mr. Jin’s newest book, The Banished Immortal: A Life of Li Bai, is a biography of the famed Tang Dynasty poet Li Bai 李白.  Drawing on a wide range of historical and literary sources to weave the great poet’s life story, Mr. Jin creates a portrait of a poet who both transcended his time and was shaped by it, and whose ability to live, love, and mourn without reservation produced some of the most enduring verses in Chinese literature.  Mr. Jin will be in Madison as part of the Wisconsin Book Festival.  Halls-Bascom Professor of Classical Chinese Literature William Nienhauser will offer the introduction.
