An Evening with Cathy Park Hong: Minor Feelings: An Asian American Reckoning (Author Visit)

 

Cathy Park Hong discusses her New York Times best-selling book Minor Feelings: An Asian American Reckoning, a collection of honest, emotionally charged, and utterly original essays that explore Asian American consciousness. Time Magazine featured Minor Feeling as one of the best books of 2020, referring to Hong as an “energetic and necessary voice in the dialogue surrounding racism in the U.S.”

Hong is the poetry editor of the New Republic and is a full professor at Rutgers-Newark University. Hong speaks with Chicago journalist Monica Eng, currently a reporter for Axios. Eng worked at Chicago’s WBEZ for eight years as the station’s Curious City reporter and spent 16 years as a reporter for the Chicago Tribune.

Presented in partnership with multiple Chicago-area libraries.
