This year’s festival GlobalAsian: from Grassroots to Globalization features authors and cultural activists from not only Canada, but across the Asian diaspora. As “Asian” cannot easily be defined within geographical borders of one continent, but rather a conceptual collection of experiences and memories, LiterASIAN shines a spotlight that critically examines what it means to be a storyteller of Asian descent.
This is the second year that LiterASIAN will be virtually broadcast live across the world festival will feature events featuring authors from across North America and the world.
The Asian Literature Circle
The Asian Literature Circle has been meeting for over 20 years and for all self-proclaimed literati, we will gather virtually together for this afternoon of book talking! Come join us for an informal discussion of books on or about Asia that we’ve read, authors we’ve enjoyed, politics, current events, anti-racism themes and anything Asian. We will give a brief history of the circle to cover our many years of readings, and can provide ideas on how to start your own circle, or if you are interested, you can join ours!
