June 26, 2014 

Pearl S. Buck (1892-1973)

 

Time: 6pm-7:30pm

Location: The Mountain Retreat and Learning Center, Highlands NC

Passersby are invited to chose from writings by this American writer who grew up in China and wrote the Pullitzer Prize winning novel, "The Good Earth" and won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1938. The selection will then be read to them.

 

More information about Pearl S. Buck can be found at these links from Wikipedia and biography.

Here is a link to a fascinating video interview she did on February 8, 1958 with Mike Wallace - about "the battle between men and women" as he phrased it! It was in response to the provocative statement she had made, "Most women make their homes their graves"...

 

"The future of America depends on immigration— it must, or we who are here will grow stagnant with too little life of our own."

from "On Discovering America" (1937)
