- Bestselling novelist and author of â€œRed Azelea,â€ comes to the Walnut Creek Library to introduce her new book, â€œThe Cooked Seed.â€ In 1994, Anchee Min made her literary debut with a memoir of growing up in China during the violent trauma of the Cultural Revolution.Â Red AzaleaÂ became an international bestseller and propelled her career as a successful, critically acclaimed author.
