Curtis Chin: Everything I Learned, I Learned in a Chinese Restaurant


From filmmaker and co-founder of the Asian American Writers’ Workshop, Curtis Chin’s memoir about coming of age and coming out traces the author’s journey through 1980’s Detroit as he navigated rising xenophobia, the AIDS epidemic, and the Reagan Revolution to find his voice as a writer and activist—all set against the backdrop of his family’s popular Chinese restaurant. Chin discusses his memoir Everything I Learned, I Learned in a Chinese Restaurant at the American Writers Museum with Grace Chan McKibben, Executive Director at the Coalition for a Better Chinese American Community. Books will be available for purchase and Chin will sign them following the program.
