The announcement from the Asian American Writers Workshop.
Come join us for a fun-filled evening with Jennifer 8. Lee, author of The Fortune Cookie Chronicles. After a Classic Kids Performance from 5:30 – 6:00pm, Jennifer will discuss the history of American Chinese food with Ken Chen, Executive Director of the Workshop!
Jennifer 8. Lee harbors a deep obsession for Chinese food, the product of which is The Fortune Cookie Chronicles (Twelve, 2008), which explores how Chinese food is all-American. As a metropolitan reporter at The New York Times, she has written about poverty, the environment, crime, politics, and technology. She has always harbored fantasies of being a fortune cookie message scribe. She has been called, by NPR, a “conceptual scoop artist.”
