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!
Please join University Libraries for another upcoming event inspired by the One Book One Community Program, More Than Recipes: A Taste of the Jacqueline M. Newman Chinese Cookbook Collection, on November 1, 2021, from 1:00 pm to 2:00 pm.
