Live via Zoom:
Monday, November 23, 7:30 PM ET
Authors in Conversation: Taiwanese Diasporan Literature
K-Ming Chang presents Bestiary
Jessica J. Lee presents Two Trees Make a Forest

5 Under 35 honoree K-Ming Chang and acclaimed author Jessica J. Lee team up to discuss their books, Taiwanese heritage, and more at this special virtual event. Chang’s spellbinding, visceral debut Bestiary follows three generations of Taiwanese American women haunted by the myths of their homeland. With a poetic voice of crackling electricity, Chang crafts a novel of migration, queer lineages, and girlhood. Lee’s Two Trees Make a Forest is an exhilarating, anti-colonial reclamation of nature writing and memoir, rooted in the forests and flatlands of Taiwan. This genre-shattering book, encompassing history, travel, nature, and memoir, is an extraordinary narrative showing how geographical forces are interlaced with our family stories. Join Chang and Lee for a night in discussion and celebration of their incredible work!
