About this EventView map
“A major reckoning. … [Hong] uses her life’s flashpoints to give voice to a wider Asian American experience, one with cascading consequences.” NPR
Cathy Park Hong is an award-winning poet and essayist whose memoir, Minor Feelings, integrates personal stories, historical context and cultural criticism into a radically honest meditation on the Asian-American experience. In this presentation and moderated conversation, Hong discusses race and identity, utilizing poetry for social change, and the power of creating art that is influenced by politics, culture and the current societal moment.
