This week, Randolph College will continue its celebration of the centennial anniversary of Pearl S. Buck’s graduation with a viewing of East Wind, West Wind, a documentary about her life.
The documentary, about 85 minutes long, tells the story of Buck’s life through interviews with Buck’s contemporaries and scholars of Asia. It includes fascinating footage of rural and urban China.
Buck, a member of the Class of 1914, was one of the best-known authors of the 20th century. She won the Nobel Prize for Literature as well as the Pulitzer Prize.
The College started a celebration of the 100th anniversary of Buck’s graduation in November, when Anchee Min, author of Pearl of China, spoke at the College. For more information about the celebration, see www.randolphcollege.edu/buck
