In conversation with comic book writer and filmmaker Greg Pak.

All You Can Ever Know (Catapult, 2018) delves into all the beauty, complications, and nuances of Nicole’s identity as a Korean adoptee, both as she embarks on her journey to connect with her biological parents and as she raises her own daughter. Min Jin Lee writes, “A primary document of witness, Chung writes her memoir as a transracial adoptee with honesty, wisdom, and love. Her search and what she discovers offer us life’s meaning and purpose of the very highest order.” Nicole’s essays and articles have been published in The New York Times, GQ, Shondaland, ELLE, Longreads, Buzzfeed, Vulture, and Hazlitt. She is the editor-in-chief of Catapult magazine and the former managing editor of The Toast.

Greg Pak is a Korean American filmmaker and comic book writer best known for his award-winning feature film Robot Stories, his blockbuster comic book series like Planet Hulk and World War Hulk, and his record-breaking Kickstarter publishing projects with Jonathan Coulton, Code Monkey Save World and The Princess Who Saved Herself.

Cosponsored by Also-Known-As and the Korean American Adoptee Adoptive Family Network.

This event will be livestreamed on the Asian American Writers’ Facebook page.
