“This is the book to read when you ask me, ‘How can I be an ally?’ This is the book to read if you want to educate yourself. This is the book to read if you want to be more in touch with your humanity.” – Writer and comedian Ali Wong

Cathy Park Hong is an award-winning poet and essayist whose memoir, Minor Feelings, integrates personal stories, historical context and cultural criticism into a radically honest meditation on the Asian-American experience. In this presentation and moderated conversation, Hong discusses race and identity, utilizing poetry for social change, and the power of creating art that is influenced by politics, culture and the current societal moment.
