In this live Canadian exclusive, join the number one bestselling author of Little Fires Everywhere as she discusses her hotly anticipated new novel, a book the critics are calling “literary perfection.”

Our Missing Hearts tells the story of Bird Gardner, a 12-year old boy growing up in an America where the authorities are relocating children of dissidents, especially those of Asian origin, under laws meant to preserve “American culture.” When Bird receives a mysterious letter containing only a cryptic drawing, he is pulled into an unforgettable quest to find his mother, a Chinese American poet who left the family when he was nine years old.

A dazzling story about the power of art to create change, and an instant classic of dystopian literature, earning comparisons to The Handmaid’s Tale, this deeply suspenseful, heartrending novel confirms Ng’s place as one of our most important and influential writers.

In conversation with moderator Lainey Lui, the founder and Editor of LaineyGossip.com and co-host of CTV's The Social.

Presented in Partnership with Penguin Random House Canada.
