Reading and discussion from a memoir-in-progress by Alvin Eng

This memoir chronicles growing up in the shadows of the Cold War in a 1970s Chinese Hand Laundry in Flushing, Queens, to performing my one-man show, “The Last Emperor of Flushing,” in English in a former People’s Hall of the Cultural Revolution in my family’s ancestral Guangdong province. The performance was part of a Fulbright-devised theatre residency I conducted, “Our Town: China/USA,” in which City University of Hong Kong students wrote and performed short plays in response to “Our Town.” http://citylore.org/event/our-laundry-our-town/
