NYC: “How to be American When People Say You’re Not” Workshop

15 Feb

The Asian American Writers Workshop hosts talk on Tues., Feb. 15 at 4 p.m., featuring Marina Budhos and Marisa Franco.

Where are you from? No, where are you really from? You’ve probably heard this question before and you know its implication: you don’t belong here. Americans are freaked out about immigrants, whether it’s the laws targeting Latinos in Arizona or the detention of South Asian and Muslim Americans. Novelist Marina Budhos and journalist Marisa Franco discuss how your stories and the stories of other immigrant teens can reshape how America sees immigration. Leave with a belly full of ice cream and a new way to talk about where.

Event to be  held at the Asian American/Asian Research Institute, 25 West 43rd Street, 18th Fl., Room A&B (between Fifth and Sixth avenues), in New York, NY.
