Greenlight is thrilled to present a reading and panel discussion on the Asian diaspora, in celebration of a new anthology by the Feminist Press, published in collaboration with the Asian American Writers’ Workshop.  In Go Home!, edited by Rowan Hisayo Buchanan, Asian diasporic writers imagine "home" in the twenty-first century through an array of fiction, memoir, and poetry. Both urgent and meditative, this anthology moves beyond the model-minority myth and showcases the singular intimacies of individuals figuring out what it means to belong.  Anthology contributors Gaiutra Bahadur (Coolie Woman: The Odyssey of Indenture), Karissa Chen (Of Birds and Lovers), Alice Sola Kim (2016 Whiting Award Winner), and Jason Koo (America's Favorite Poem) read from their work and discuss the meaning of home, in a panel moderated by anthology editor Rowan Hisayo Buchanan.
