Feedback form is now closed.
Event Description
Kundiman is a nonprofit organization that serves Asian American writers. Kundiman creates an affirming and rigorous space where Asian American writers can explore, through art, the unique challenges that face the new and ever changing diaspora. We see the arts as a tool of empowerment, of education and liberation, of addressing proactively what legacy we will leave for our future generations. 

In this reading, five Asian American writers, Michelle Chan Brown, Chen Chen, Jennifer S. Cheng, Jai Dulani, and Jane Wong, will begin by reading work by ancestor writers who are considered outside of their self-identified racial and/ or ethnic community/-ities. Following this, the writers will share their own work which highlights this kind of productive hybrid cross-community fertilization.
