Event Details

Being young can be difficult terrain. Awkward human growing pains sometimes coincide with migration and racial difference and family drama.

Fortunately, travelers and writers have left maps (in the form of Young Adult literature) at the formative threshold between childhood and grown-upness to help along the path. This becomes even more vital when Asian American stories are often left out of formal curricula, leaving young readers to construct their racial and social identities on their own.

Writers and readers of YA lit are invited to join Evelina Galang (author of Angel de la Luna and the 5th Glorious Mystery), Marina Budhos (author of Tell Us We're Home), and Neesha Meminger (author of Shine, Coconut Moon) for a reading and conversation about the role of Young Adult writing in our communities.

Erica Chutuape will moderate the conversation.
