Author Event | Frances Kai-Hwa Wang: You Cannot Resist Me When My Hair Is in Braids


Tuesday April 26, 2022: 6:30pm to 7:30pm  Add to Calendar /   Add to Google Calendar


Downtown Library: 4th Floor Meeting Room


Long time Ann Arbor writer and educator Frances Kai-Hwa Wang reads from her new book, You Cannot Resist Me When My Hair Is in Braids. With many stories set on the streets and in the cafes of Ann Arbor, this is a mischievous and fierce collection of lyric essays and prose poems deftly navigating the space between cultures, punctuated by wise children, bossy aunties, unreliable suitors, and an uncertain political landscape that is Asian America. With artwork and stories behind the stories, we will discuss the challenges of writing in these political and pandemic times.

This event will feature a signing with books for sale. 

On the day of the event participants will be asked to sign in, one sign-in per group: Event Sign-In.
