Diasporic Displacements: Jamie Chai Yun Liew & Tsering Yangzom Lama
September 27 at 8:30pm
Join Canadian authors Tsering Yangzom Lama and Jamie Chai Yun Liew for a moving conversation reflecting on the emotional cost of leaving home to forge a new life elsewhere – whether by choice or by circumstance – and the need to maintain a connection to ancestral lands. Tsering Yanzom Lama presents We Measure the Earth with Our Bodies, a poignant meditation on colonization, displacement and rebirth recounting a Tibetan family’s fifty-year journey through exile and their struggles to shape new lives. Jamie Chai Yun Liew’s Dandelion is a beautifully written and affecting novel about an Asian woman who must trace her mother’s past journey in order to learn who she really is and where she belongs.
Moderated by Nancy Lam.
