Han Suyin, 1917-2012

The death has been announced of Chinese-born British writer Han Suyin, who died on Friday at the age of 95. You might not recognize the name at first, although you'll recognize one of her most famous books. Born to a Chinese father and Belgian mother, she wrote about her experiences as a woman of mixed race in the book A Many-Splendoured Thing. The book was wildly popular, and a title you probably will recognize. Since the book was so popular, it's no surprise Hollywood wanted to make a movie version out of it, which became Love Is a Many-Splendored Thing.

Love Is a Many-Splendored Thing just happened to be on the schedule for this coming Sunday, November 11, at 8:00 PM.
