Lisa See

New York Times best-selling author Lisa See has written books ranging from mystery to historical fiction to a memoir of her Chinese American family.

On Gold Mountain, the memoir, became a national bestseller that inspired a 2000-2001 exhibition at the Autry Museum of Western Heritage and a 2000 production by the Los Angeles Opera, for which See wrote the libretto.

She was then awarded the title of National Woman of the Year by the Organization of Chinese American Women in 2001, and in 2003 was the recipient of the Chinese American Museum’s History Makers Award.

See has also designed a walking tour of Los Angeles’ Chinatown.

She will receive the Golden Spike Award from the Chinese Historical Society of Southern California in 2017.
