Spend an evening with Cathy Park Hong, who will discuss her New York Times bestselling 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 Feelings 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.” Ms Hong is the poetry editor of The New Republic and is a professor at Rutgers-Newark University. She will be in conversation with Chicago journalist Monica Eng.
Time magazine included Ms. Hong in their list of 100 most influential people for 2021. Here's an article about why she was selected.
