Event Details

Minor Feelings: An Asian-American Reckoning by Cathy Park Hong 

Hong dissects her experiences as an Asian American to create an intricate meditation on racial awareness in the U.S. Through a combination of cultural criticism and personal stories, Hong, a poet, lays bare the shame and confusion she felt in her youth as the daughter of Korean immigrants, and the way those feelings morphed as she grew older. From analyzing Richard Pryor’s stand-up to interrogating her relationship with the English language, Hong underscores essential themes of identity and otherness. Co-sponsored by the League of Women Voters Wichita-Metro. Books will be available for checkout at the Advanced Learning Library one month before the discussion.
