Word Week 2017 | Noe Valley

How do immigrant writers navigate multiple cultural and geographical perspectives? In this reading and panel discussion, Kirstin Chen, Ingrid Rojas Contreras, Andrew Lam, and Juliana Delgado Lopera will share how they encapsulate two—or more—sometimes radically different cultural identities in their work and the complications and opportunities that arise when those identities intermingle on the page.

Copies of the authors’ books will be available for sale and signing. Free refreshments.
