Join editors Andrea Louie and Johnny Lew for a special launch event to mark the publication of the Workshop’s latest anthology, Topography of War: Asian American Essays, a collection of creative nonfiction works that examine the many ways in which war remains part of personal histories as well as the collective memory of Asian America.
Special Guest: Channapha Khamvongsa, project director of Legacies of War. Legacies of War was created to raise awareness about the history of the Vietnam War-era bombing in Laos, to provide space for healing the wounds of war and to create greater hope for a future of peace. Founded in 2004, Legacies of War uses a multifaceted approach, including visual and performance arts, to tell the stories of the Laotian people and their enduring survival of the bombing in Laos and the lingering effects of deadly cluster bombs.
