By Felicia Lin

A note from Talking Taiwan host Felicia Lin:

February 28th is a national holiday in Taiwan and it’s just around the corner. But how many know the somber significance behind the date and what it commemorates? Author Jennifer J. Chow has written a novel inspired by the 228 Incident (which refers to February 28, 1947).

I spoke with her about the 228 Incident and how it relates to her novel, The 228 Legacy. Jennifer has a new book coming out in March, it’s a cozy mystery novel called, Mimi Lee Gets A Clue. We also spoke about that, her other book projects and her writing process.

Here’s a little preview of what we talked about in this podcast episode:

  • What is the 228 Incident?
  • How the 228 Incident is related to Jennifer’s book The 228 Legacy
