This October, join the AAWW for an event celebrating Eugene Lim‘s highly anticipated new book, Search History. With the use of brilliant prose, this uniquely inventive novel explores American culture, technology, artmaking, and storytelling through the eyes of a grieving narrator. Eugene will be joined in conversation by writer Gina Apostol.
This event will be live-streamed on Zoom. Please RSVP to receive the Zoom link via email. The event will be uploaded to the AAWW YouTube channel the following week.
