Episode Notes

A little late, but here is our discussion of the Books & Boba May 2020 book club pick, The Woman Warrior: Memoirs of a Girlhood Among Ghosts by Maxine Hong Kingston, our first attempt at reading an Asian American literary classic. We dive into this memoir that blends autobiographical storytelling with folklore and oral histories, and reflect upon our own experiences as second generation children of immigrants.

Books & Boba recognizes that we are currently in a historic moment in American history. We know that Black lives matter and stand with the brave people fighting across the world for an end to systemic racism in our institutions as well as the death and inequality those systems cause.
