Talked about why Jews love Chinese food, at a JCC in Tampa. Of course.
Went up today! Beautifully edited by Jason Wishnow. Jennifer 8. Lee: Who was General Tso? and other mysteries of American Chinese food Reporter Jennifer 8. Lee talks about her hunt for the origins of familiar Chinese-American dishes — exploring the hidden spots where these two cultures have (so tastily) combined to form a new cuisine.
These were created and executed as the JCC of Greater Washington as part of my talk. I think they were absolutely adorable and I took one as a souvenir.
Just get it onto my calendar. Lots of Denver. AIWF talk on Sunday Jan. 25, 2009. The Empress Seafood Restaurant on Alameda in Denver.
It seems like I will be speaking at the University of Indiana at Bloomington at 7 p.m. on April 2 in the School of Journalism auditorium as part of Asian American Heritage Month.
Partnering with the SoHo Synagogue for a mouth watering Chinese Dinner Party at at beautiful downtown loft. (Love the musical effects on that page. These guys know presentation and events!) MENU: Upon arriving you will find mini designer Chinese take-out containers stuffed with either Spicy Sesame Noodles or Chow-Mein Chicken Salad with Orange Segments and […]
I might be making fried turkey dumplings on TV. Cross fingers. Just dropped the fried dumplings off today. Fried turkey dumplings, of course, were my family’s solutions to elementary school bake sales — as Chinese people don’t bake (as I’ve explained before). They don’t bake brownies. They don’t bake pies. They don’t bake apple crisps. […]

I finally got my chance to appear on the Kojo Nnamdi show on WAMU in Washington, which means that except for Chicago, I’ve been on all the major NPR markets: New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Seattle, Boston, Washington, Philadelphia (WHYY’s building is soooo nice) + assorted markets in New Hampshire, Colorado. I have to […]

This is my biggest stretch without a speaking engagement since I started doing book talks on March 3. (I did three talks in four days recently) Yesterday I did the Flushing Library, which is one of my favorite libraries from my childhood, but arguably brings out some interesting characters.
A bit delayed, but my first talk from my book tour is finally up. It was actually, looking back, a fantastic event to kick off my book tour. About 150 people in the middle of the day (almost all of whom I didn’t know). That and the Politics and Prose event, also ~150 people, made […]
Am in Denver to speak the local chapter of the Society of Professional Journalist (a four star chapter at that). I just saw the invite for the talk and dinner. It’s adorable.
Did some library events earlier this week, and I love seeing the signs they put up with the name of the book in that piecemeal lettering. I love local libraries. That is how I grew up learning to read. The signs remind me of traveling through Iowa and Ohio and places like that. (though these […]
I might be going to speak at an American Library Association conference in Denver next January (yes, Denver in January) on my use of the historical newspaper archives offered by ProQuest. I love ProQuest and even thank them in my acknowledgments. Basically their historical archives were perfect for something like my book — searching for […]
I thought this invite, sent out for my Phoenix event this Sunday, was adorable.
Speaking on a panel at the LATimes book fair called Eat This Book with Fred Kaufman and Raj Patel at 1 p.m. Sunday in Moore 100. The moderator is Barry Glassner. It is gargantuan book fair, basically taking over the entire UCLA campus.
Last week I got to speak in the Dining Hall of the Jane Addams Hull-House Museum in Chicago (at the invitation of Lisa Yun Lee). This was a room that W.E.B Â Dubois, Ida B. Wells, Upton Sinclair, Gertrude Stein, Eleanor Roosevelt, Charlotte Perkins Gilman, Carl Sandburg have all spoken in. Very historic. So it was […]

I’m speaking at the Asia Society tomorrow with Fuchsia Dunlop, a great Chinese cuisine chef, on Chinese food.:6:30 p.m., April 16, at the Asia Society at 70th and Park.

Today I am doing an insane tour by phone set up via Newman Communications, a PR firm that specializes in (among other things) literary radio and satellite television tours. They essentially hook you up with radio programsÂ (mostly live, some pre-taped) coast to coast on a very tight schedule. It has to be done over […]
