Illinois Woman’s Press Association is proud to participate in Chicago Women in Publishing’s annual Fall Kickoff event to celebrate the beginning of CWIP’s 2017/2018 programming year. Our sister organization is pleased to welcome memoirist Jian Ping, also know as Jennifer Kwong, as the event’s keynote speaker.

Jian Ping is the author of Mulberry Child: A Memoir of China (2008). It tells the story of her coming of age and her family’s struggle during China’s Cultural Revolution. In 2011, the book was adapted into an award-winning documentary film, which was broadcasted nationally on PBS for three consecutive years.

Each attendee receives a drink ticket along with one raffle ticket to win a one-year CWIP membership or any of the many other prizes available. Food will also be provided. Additional raffle tickets will be on sale during the event until the drawing at 8:00 p.m.
