Celeste Ng & Catherine Chung

Wednesday, July 9, 7:30 PM
Celeste Ng presents Everything I Never Told You
In conversation with Catherine Chung
Co-hosted by the Asian American Writers Workshop
Wine reception to follow

Pushcart Prize winner Celeste Ng, who read at Greenlight in May as one of the One Story Literary Debutantes, presents her debut novel Everything I Never Told You, the story of a mixed-race family in the 1970s and the tragedy that may be their undoing or their salvation. Both a gripping page turner and a moving portrait of love, loss, and the meaning of home, the novel introduces the unforgettable Lee family, whose beloved middle child is found dead in their Ohio suburb, and their journey through grief in search of understanding. Ng talks about race, family, and fiction this evening with Catherine Chung, author of Forgotten Country, an acclaimed novel of Korean immigrants. Greenlight is proud to partner with the Asian American Writers Workshop to present this reading and discussion, which will be followed by a wine reception.
