Many thanks to Lexington Education Foundation for hosting Charles Yu, author of Interior Chinatown, as he discussed his book with LHS students & the Lexington community.
Representatives of CAAL conveyed to Charles how meaningful his book is in helping students learn about the Chinese-American experience. It was a well attended event. There were many great questions raised by the audience. Charles’s sharing was candid and authentic.
This opportunity is made possible through a program funded by Lexington Education Foundation and the inspiring work of Samantha St. Lawrence, the LHS educator leading the Lexington in Conversation project.
With the support of CAAL, the Interior Chinatown is available at Cary Library in paperback, Large Print, digial audiobook and ebook: https://bit.ly/3zk26AA
