Words and Borders: Common Threads of Migration and Resilience

May 14th, 2.00pm – 3.30pm (PST)

Register for Words and Borders: Common Threads of Migration and Resilience here.

A collection of personal memories related to specific moments or experiences can comprise a number of approaches – whether it’s a short story, poem, memoir, or an illustrated children’s book. Sharing the common threads of intergenerational writing and translation about memories of home and migration, the challenges of publishing their stories as books, and insight into how reconciliation can mean coming to terms with past wrongs and healing together in different communities, this panel of authors will offer a fascinating afternoon of conversation. Join members of the Asian Literature Circle in this annual story-sharing event, in partnership with the Pacific Canada Heritage Centre Museum of Migration (PCHC) and the Asian Literature Circle.

This event is part of the LiterASIAN 2023 festival. LiterASIAN is the annual destination for emerging and established writers, academics, instructors, students, editors, booksellers, and publishers. Over the past decade, LiterASIAN festival has included thousands of attendees, numerous events and bookfairs, and numerous literary conversations and celebrations.
