Join us for the second reading roundtable with the UI Libraries focused on bestselling author, Cathy Park Hong’s book Minor Feelings: An Asian American Reckoning. The Pan Asian Council and the UI Libraries will be leading discussions and readings for the text leading up to Cathy Park Hong’s Virtual Keynote April, 21st. Those who have and have not read the book are welcome as a variety of engagements will be available. Book giveaways will be available at both events.

Cathy Park Hong’s book of creative nonfiction, Minor Feelings, has been named one of the best books of the year by Jennifer Szalai, The New York Times, The Washington Post, NPR, Time, New Statesman, BuzzFeed, Esquire, The New York Public Library, and Book Riot. Cathy Park Hong fearlessly and provocatively blends memoir, cultural criticism, and history to expose fresh truths about racialized consciousness in America. Part memoir and part cultural criticism, this collection is vulnerable, humorous, and provocative—and its relentless and riveting pursuit of vital questions around family and friendship, art and politics, identity and individuality, will change the way you think about our world.
