    • Cathy Park Hong presents Minor Feelings in conversation with Courtney Sato

      Online,

      Join us for a special event featuring Cathy Park Hong, author of Minor Feelings: An Asian American Reckoning, in conversation with Courtney Sato. In Minor Feelings, poet and essayist 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. *Registration is required. Zoom link will be sent out prior to the event.* Cathy Park Hong is the poetry editor of the New Republic and a full professor at Rutgers-Newark University. Her New York Times bestselling book of creative nonfiction, Minor Feelings, was published in Spring 2020 by One World/Random House and Profile Books (UK).
