Memory, Meaning and Memoir Reading
APICC is proud to present this live-streamed reading by artists, educators, veteran activists and writers of all levels from the AAPI community. They will share their stories and poems written in the course of a memoir writing workshop conducted by poet-playwright, Genny Lim. The on-going, online workshops have met every week throughout the pandemic, providing a safe haven for building community through shared writing that excavates the truths buried by historic racism and deep, generational trauma. These memoir pieces were written in response to weekly writing prompts provided by Genny. The writers are proud to share their new work.
This event is free and open to the public. Advance registration is requested. A Zoom link will be sent via email 30 minutes prior to the event.
Participating Artists: Leon Sun, Leslie Yee Murata, Casimiro Tolentino, Susan Hayase, Grace Morizawa, Lynn Huang, Carole Chinn-Morales, Lisa Oyama, Noah Kawaguchi
