Fans can meet young adult author
March 29, 2011
Dori Jones Yang, the author of a novel for young adults about the Mongol Empire, is scheduled to sign books for fans April 2 in Issaquah.
Yang’s debut novel — “Daughter of Xanadu” — introduces readers to 16-year-old Princess Emmajin, the granddaughter of Kublai Khan. The princess is determined to serve as a warrior in the Mongol army — something no woman has done before.
Fans can meet the author at 1 p.m. at Costco, 1801 10th Ave. N.W.
Yang, a former China correspondent for Business Magazine, teamed up with Starbucks chief Howard Schultz to write the bestselling “Pour Your Heart Into It: How Starbucks Built a Company One Cup at a Time” in the late 1990s.
