Students and librarians come together to share ideas about Charles’ Yu’s ‘Interior Chinatown’

On Thursday, October 7, 2021, a small number of students and librarians gathered in the North Reading Room for a discussion of the One Book One Community book selection, Charles Yu’s Interior Chinatown. The gathering was both an opportunity to discuss passages and themes from the text and a chance to exchange reactions and experiences of Yu’s October 6 visit to campus. Some participants arrived with fully marked-up copies of the book, and others came only with a hope to learn more about it and eventually read it themselves. All walked away with appreciation for the opportunity share ideas and excitement about Interior Chinatown and Yu’s inspirational visit!
