Island: Poetry and History of Chinese Immigrants on Angel Island, 1910-1940
with Co-Editor Judy Yung

Saturday, May 2, 2015 3:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Join co-editor Judy Yung as she discusses the Angel Island Chinese immigrant experience, the remarkable poetry engravings on the barrack walls, and more from her book, Island: Poetry and History of Chinese Immigrants on Angel Island, 1910-1940, Second Edition.

Though the stories are from a specific time and place, they are deeply connected to the immigration issues that face newcomers today. 

First published in 1980, this expanded second edition includes a new historical introduction, 150 annotated poems in Chinese and English translation, extensive profiles of immigrants gleaned through oral histories, and dozens of new photographs from public archives and family albums. 

 

Judy will be on-hand after the reading to answer questions and sign books which are available in the museum Marketplace.

The reading is free but does not include admission into the museum.

In conjuction with Belonging: Before & After the Immigration Act of 1965; with support from Seattle Department of Neighborhoods and the Tateuchi Foundation.

 

Location: In the Tateuchi Story Theatre
Fees: Free (does not include admission into the museum)
