A Celebration of Asian-American Authors


September 23, 2017




CityLit Stage

Readings and discussions with authors: Eugenia Kim, whose novel, The Calligrapher’s Daughter, won the 2009 Borders Original Voices Award. Her new work, The Kinship of Secrets follows two sisters, one raised in the US, the other in Korea, and the family that bound them together even as the Korean War kept them apart. In raw, poignant alternating first-person narratives, interspersed with e-mails, gay chat-room exchanges, and other fragments of a youth laid bare in the age of social media, James Han Mattson’s debut novel, The Lost Prayers of Ricky Graves unravels the mystery of a life in all its glory. Jung Yun’s debut novel, Shelter, explores the lives of people who will never forget the violence they suffered. It offers an honest, complex look at the human capacity to hope, change, and heal. Shelter was a finalist for the Barnes and Noble Discover Great New Writers Award.
