Panel Discussion/Talk

Asian American Authors Book Talk: Elizabeth Miki Brina, author of Okinawa: A Memoir

Wednesday, December 8, 2021
6 – 7PM

Please join us for a virtual book talk with Elizabeth Miki Brina. We will be discussing her book, Speak, Okinawa: A Memoir, which is available through the NYPL catalog. This talk is part of a conversation series with Asian American authors and their works.

Speak, Okinawa has received critical acclaim. From The Washington Post: “Brina recounts, with piercing candidness and clarity, the almost claustrophobic world of an only child and her parents … The memoir is also a portrait of the devastating effects of imperialism and racism on a person’s identity, self-worth, and relationships—and offers a perspective on how a person can combat these legacies.”

Registration is required. You will need a device with audio and/or video and an internet connection to join. You must register with an email address in order to receive the link to participate. The link will be sent to you the day of the discussion. Space is limited to 100 people.

This virtual program is being presented by Chatham Square Library of NYPL in cooperation with the Asian American Writers’ Workshop (AAWW).
