Amy Fung Book Launch & Talk

  • Latitude 53 10242 106 Street Northwest Edmonton, AB, T5J 1H7 Canada (map)

Join author Amy Fung and University of Alberta Writer-in-Residence Janet Rogers for an evening of readings and conversation from their latest works.

Following the tangents of a foreign-born perspective and the complexities and complicities in participating in ongoing acts of colonial violence, Fung’s Before I was a Critic I was a Human Being takes the form of a very long land acknowledgement. Taken individually, each piece roots itself in the learning and unlearning process of a first generation settler immigrant as she unfurls each region’s sense of place and identity.

We’ll be on-site with copies of Amy Fung’s and Janet Rogers’ books for purchase.
