Set in the American West—one novel in the 1880s amid the Chinese Exclusion Act and the other in a 1930s Denver haunted by visions of an Indigenous homeland threatened and devastated—Four Treasures of the Sky by Jenny Tinghui Zhang and Woman of Light by Kali Fajardo-Anstine tell “Wild West” stories not told enough.

Moderator: Sam Babiak, program director at the Writers’ League of Texas
