LiterASIAN 2020 – “Quiet No More”
A Festival of Asian Canadian Writing
August 15 to August 30, 2020
In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, LiterASIAN 2020 goes virtual!
This year’s theme is “Quiet No More“. LiterASIAN 2020 features an incredible line up of authors with a full schedule of events. The festival is located on the unceded Coast Salish Territories of the Musqueam, Tsleil Waututh, and Squamish people.
It comprises both Asian and non-Asian writers of color showcasing their voices while inviting the audience to do the same to add their voice into the conversation. In promoting established and emerging writers of color, this event not only builds bridges with the community through an afternoon of reading and conversation, but also an opportunity for the writers to share their trials and experiences of being a BIPOC writer in an often exclusive publishing world.
Featured writers include Anosh Irani (author of Translated from the Gibberish), Fiona Tinwei Lam (author of Enter the Chrysanthemum and Odes & Laments), Carlo Javier (author of Janitors), Nathalie De Los Santos (author of Alice’s Order), Rachel D’Sa (author of Alice in Glitterland) and Kevin Kapenda.
