Happy Birthday Amy Tan!


Novelist Amy Tan was born on this day in 1952.  She was born to Chinese immigrants who came to Oakland, California in 1949.

Tan studied English at San Jose State and Berkeley, but became bored with academic life, and turned to the world of publishing.  She published her first novel, The Joy Luck Club, in 1989, and has written several others adult and children’s works since that time.
