Gene Luen Yang is a beloved comic book artist and award-winning graphic novelist. His book American Born Chinese became the first graphic novel to be nominated for a National Book Award and the first to win the American Library Association’s Printz Award. Yang’s two-volume graphic novel Boxers & Saints was nominated for a National Book Award and won the L.A. Times Book Prize. In January 2016, the Library of Congress, Every Child A Reader, and the Children’s Book Council appointed Yang the National Ambassador for Young People’s Literature. In September 2016, Yang was named a MacArthur Fellow.

Yang’s talk will focus on issues of diversity, US-Chinese identity, and his career in cartooning. It will be followed by a question and answer session and a book signing. Copies of his books will be available for purchase at the theater.

This event is part of the China Remixed festival.

Doors will open at 7pm.
