The Chinese-American Dream

Co-presented with Suffolk University’s Rosenberg Institute of East Asian Studies

Twenty years after penning her first memoir on growing up in China during the Cultural Revolution, author Anchee Min now releases The Cooked Seed: the true story of her journey to, and within, America. Min draws us in to bear witness to her trek from a land of deprivation to one of surrounding bounty that is just out of her reach. She works five jobs at once and suffers rape, exhaustion, and divorce. As these revolutionary personal events shape her world view, they culminate in the biggest shift of all: the birth of her daughter. Moderator Elif Armbruster (Associate Professor of English, Suffolk University) helps Min present her unique immigration narrative within the universal struggle of building a life despite precious few fundamental tools.

Anchee Min will be signing and selling copies of her book, The Cooked Seed, at the end of the event.

Thursday, May 23, 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
C. Walsh Theatre, 55 Temple Street, Suffolk University
