“Hapa Tales and Other Lies” at Oakland Asian Cultural Center
November 30, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
In her first work of literary nonfiction, HAPA TALES AND OTHER LIES, Sharon H. Chang explores her Asian American and Mixed Race identity through the prism of returning to Hawaii as a tourist. But what begins as a journey to discover herself turns into much more as she learns the true history of the islands, Hawaii’s Indigenous children, and the Native Hawaiian Sovereignty Movement.
Please join author Sharon H. Chang for a special Oakland Chinatown event celebrating her new memoir, co-hosted by EastwindBooks Berkeley. The evening will include reading and discussion with Sharon and NoCal writers Asha Sudra, Wei Ming Dariotis, Nia McAllister and Fredrick D. Kakinami Cloyd.
