Maxine Hong Kingston and Gish Jen: A Dialogue on Immigration
The 2011 Civic Discourse series, "Immigrants in America," kicks off with a conversation between two distinguished award-winning Chinese-American authors, Maxine Hong Kingston and Gish Jen, moderated by Suffolk University Scholar-in-Residence James Carroll.  The discussion will touch upon the unique problems and challenges of being second-generation immigrants – and how family and school life, language, identity and self-esteem, generational differences, and experiences of discrimination may have influenced their outlook as writers in the cultural melting pot that is America.  What hurdles have to be overcome or compromises made in order to develop an authentic literary voice and to be a successful American author today?

Funding for the Civic Discourse Initiative has been provided by the Daniel and Joanna S. Rose Programming Fund at the Boston Athenaeum and by Suffolk University's College of Arts and Sciences.

This event is free and open to the public.
