Readings and conversations about the lost pages of Asian history, both abroad and in Seattle's back yard. Chew, a third-generation Seattleite, will bring to life the small family shops and chop suey restaurants of Seattle's past, his family's travels to America during the Chinese Exclusion Act, and the fight for Asian American social justice. Afterwards, translators Ju-Chan and Bruce Fulton will illuminate the sordid history of Korean comfort women in One Left, the first Korean novel devoted to this subject.
