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 was originally recorded on April 26th, 2022.
