Curtis Chin • Author Talk & Book Signing
Join us for a special afternoon with Curtis Chin, author of Everything I Learned, I Learned in a Chinese Restaurant. Chin will be in conversation with Amy Hill as they dive into what it was like growing up as a gay ABC, or American-Born Chinese, in the 1980s. Filled with personal and familial anecdotes as well as memories both sweet and sour, Chin's memoir captures an Asian American experience often not shared out loud but is very much a fabric of American identity and our evolving diverse society. Q&A & book signing to follow the talk story and author's reading.
Saturday June 22 from 9:00 - 11:00 a.m.
Master Narratives Writing Workshop
Local author & educator Dr. Stephanie Han presents this generative creative process workshop that explores the complexities and ideas of Master Narratives.
