W ow. It isn't every day your article gets published by TIME Magazine. This is a piece my wonderful publicist at William Morrow pitched to the history features editor at TIME, who had never heard about the evacuation of Chinese universities at the start of World War I, let alone the priceless library that the students, faculty, and staff of Zhejiang University protected at great risk to their own lives.

Read about The Risky Journey That Saved One of China’s Greatest Literary Treasures, the true history behind THE LIBRARY OF LEGENDS. And just so you know, this is in the online edition of TIME, not in the print edition.

    Brilliant as always, Janie. You are an amazing author, teacher, and friend to so many. You have taught so many of us here in Canada about the amazing Chinese culture. Again, thank you.

      Thank you, dear Lee. I’ve learned so much doing the research, it’s embarassing how little I knew before tackling historical fiction!
