Peter Lighte *81 "Host of Memories: Tales of Inevitable Happenstance"




PA3 is pleased to cooperate with Labyrinth Books in hosting

Peter Lighte *81, PhD in East Asian Studies

 for a reading of and conversation about his recent book.  

Join us for a fascinating evening!




Peter Lighte *81 — Host of Memories: Tales of Inevitable Happenstance
Thursday, November 19th, 2015 at 6PM — Labyrinth Books Princeton 

Labyrinth Books and PA3 invite you to a reading from and conversation about Peter Lighte's new collection of personal stories, which reveal just how powerfully one man's present has been shaped by the richness of his past.
More info on Labyrinth's website.

Following his parents' divorce in segregated pre-Castro Miami in the late 1950s, Peter Rupert Lighte moved with his fragile mother to New York City, where he was raised amidst a community of eccentric and loving relatives and friends. In Host of Memories, he shares tales of his early years as an awkward "only child"; his Jewish roots; his fortuitous encounters with Chinese culture; his embrace of sexuality; life in Beijing, London, Hong Kong, and Tokyo; dreams of fatherhood; and much more. He ultimately finds his future husband--a distinguished English composer--and, together with their two adopted daughters, a sense of belonging.

Peter Rupert Lighte, a sinologist and founding chairman of J. P. Morgan Chase Bank China, is a banker who has also taught Chinese history and philosophy. He lived abroad for almost three decades, dividing his time between London and Asia. Lighte is on the boards of Half the Sky Foundation and the Council on International Educational Exchange. He is the author of --in addition to Host of Memories -- Pieces of China.
