Drowning in two years of all-consuming depression, acclaimed author Yiyun Li found that books became her lifeline. She retraces the winding path of her literary journey—through places light and profoundly dark—in her new memoir, Dear Friend, from My Life I Write to You in Your Life. This kickoff to the NYPL’s spring event season puts Li in conversation with best-selling, daring novelist Mary Gaitskill (The Mare, Secretary).
