Nicole Chung - All You Can Ever Know: A Memoir — in conversation with Julie Buntin

Upcoming Event
Tuesday, October 16, 2018 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

The adopted daughter of white parents, Chung grew up with the cliché that her Korean immigrant parents had let her go so that she could have a better life. This told her nothing about who she was, nor did it help her find her place in small-town Oregon where she faced prejudices her adoptive family was blind to. As she recounts her search for the truth about her biological family, Chung, editor-in-chief of Catapult magazine and the former managing editor of The Toast, explores a range of questions related to adoption, motherhood, and race. Writing with warmth, candor, and above all, compassion, she makes her personal story of claiming her identity as an Asian American writer and mother resonate with the larger issues that both divide and unify the country.
