Join us for a Zoom meeting with Author Julie Tieu

Join APL to celebrate the lighter side of literature.

Take an escape with a romance and get to know Julie Tieu, author of "The Donut Trap", who will join us for a Zoom discussion of her book.

Book Description:

Jasmine Tran has landed herself behind bars—maple bars that is. With no boyfriend or job prospects, Jasmine returns home to work at her parents’ donut shop. Jasmine quickly loses herself in a cyclical routine of donuts, Netflix, and sleep. She wants to break free from her daily grind, but when a hike in rent threatens the survival of their shop, her parents rely on her more than ever. Help comes in the form of an old college crush, Alex Lai. Not only is he successful and easy on the eyes, to her parents’ delight, he’s also Chinese. He’s everything she should wish for, until a disastrous dinner reveals Alex isn’t as perfect as she thinks. Worse, he doesn’t think she’s perfect either. With both sets of parents against their relationship, a family legacy about to shut down, and the reappearance of an old high school flame, Jasmine must scheme to find a solution that satisfies her family’s expectations and can get her out of the donut trap once and for all.

New members are always welcome. You don't have to read the book to join, but it is encouraged.

Instructions to join the Zoom meeting will be emailed to all registrants.
