Description

Join us for the opening Reception for the LiterASIAN 2017 festival at Thai Town Restaurant with food, music entertainment, and a cash bar! Centred around the theme of "Storytelling and the Art of the Novel," this year's festival will feature authors Leslie Shimotakahara, Terry Watada, Eleanor Guerrero-Campbell, Leanne Dunic, Julia Lin, Jen Sookfong Lee, and Catherine Hernandez who will all be present at the Reception with books to sell and sign!

Catherine Hernandez, previous winner of the Jim Wong-Chu Emerging Writers Award, will also present the award to this year's winner of best poetry manuscript.

This year’s reception will simultaneously serve as the book launch of Currents: A Ricepaper Anthology. After completing its first year as a digital magazine, Ricepaper has gathered the best writing it has posted online, and compiled it into a physical anthology.
