Through our YouTube channel, AAWW TV, you can relive the magic of live events at our space in Chelsea, check out in-depth interviews with writers, and more. Every Thursday we’ll be sharing a new segment from AAWW TV on The Margins.

Join us for a night featuring writers of fragmented, hybrid family narratives that explore themes of immigration, grief, and the father: Q.M. Zhang and lê thị diễm thúy, who’ll talk with the New Yorker’s Hua Hsu. A hybrid memoir/novel that’s part espionage, part historical documentary, Q.M. Zhang’s Accomplice to Memory tells the story of her father’s mysterious exodus from China during the country’s Civil War and WWII: all the silence and love that you’ve come to know from your Asian immigrant family, but with added subterfuge and geopolitics. We also have a rare AAWW appearance of Guggenheim Fellow lê thị diễm thúy, whose The Gangster We Are All Looking Fora recent Asian American classictells the collage-like semi-autobiographical story of a refugee family that immigrates to San Diego, leaving behind a stark past of war and liberation in Vietnam.
