Jim Wong-Chu is considered one of the first Asian-Canadian authors to give voice to Asian communities in times when support for Asian arts was difficult to obtain. He dedicated much of his time to compiling a literary anthology called Many-Mouthed Birds that showcased the richness of Asian-Canadian literature.
The public is invited to a special listening event on Saturday, October 19 from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. at the Motion Capture Studio (Room D1400) at Emily Carr University.
Invited guest readers will read a selection of Wong-Chu’s poetry published in his book Chinatown Ghosts, alongside their own work. Audience and attendee participation is encouraged and scheduled readings will be followed by an open mic segment.
