GHOST FOREST
Pik-Shuen Fung, K-Ming Chang
GHOST FOREST

RSVP HERE!

In July, the Asian American Writers’ Workshop celebrates the launch of former AAWW Margins fellow Pik-Shuen Fung‘s highly anticipated new novel, Ghost Forest. This powerful debut explores migration and grief, joy and sorrow, through the eyes of an unnamed protagonist as she travels through the collective memories of her family. Through spirited prose, Ghost Forest reminds readers that “grief, memory, and history are never linear but always alive” (K-Ming Chang). Pik-Shuen will be joined in conversation by K-Ming Chang.

Following the conversation, our friends at Tables of Contents and Pecking House will join us online for an afterparty with Chef Eric Huang, who will join us to cook a recipe inspired by Pik-Shuen’s novel.

Purchase a signed copy of Ghost Forest from our friends at Books Are Magic!

*This event will be live-streamed on Zoom, and CART captions will be available. The first 500 RSVPs will receive access to the Zoom link via email. The event will be uploaded to AAWW YouTube channel the following week.*

Pik-Shuen Fung was born in Hong Kong and grew up in Vancouver, Canada. She is a Kundiman Fiction Fellow, a Kundiman Mentorship Lab Fellow, and a Margins Fellow at the Asian American Writers’ Workshop.
