Book Club: Face Up by Xiao-Ye and Li Ya

An overseas text message opened the conversations between a father and his daughter, Xiao-Ye and Li Ya, two brilliant Taiwanese writers. Their overseas communications were collected and published, entitled Face Up. On April 9th, NTNU invited them to talk about children upbringing, sharing with students their different viewpoint from 2 different generations. Xiao-Ye’s father had a strict education manner. Consequently, perhaps, he gave his daughter Li Ya much more freedom, tolerance and room for exploration than he had. “Love has no absolute rights,” they concluded. With the father’s memories in the book, the daughter strides into her future.
