Airports are where people and lives briefly touch, interact and then move on. In these twelve interwoven short stories by different authors set in a Chicago airport, Asian–American children and teens interact with each other while awaiting flights. Unfortunately, sometimes when they encounter other passengers these children are met with racism, leading to the overarching question: are you where you belong? This collection of powerful, yet funny stories is a great start to a conversation about both listening and speaking up in order to find one’s place in society.
On April 26, at 10:30AM, I will be presenting at the Politics and Prose Bookstore on Connecticut Avenue, DC! This event is free to attend and open to the public, however, reservations are required for school groups interested in attending. Seating is available on a first come, first served basis.
