The Writers' Room of Boston presents GISH JEN
Presented by The Writers' Room of Boston
October 21, 2013
The Writers’ Room of Boston is honored to host G I S H J E N in celebration of our 25th birthday. Gish Jen’s recent memoir, Tiger Writing, has been called "a magnificent feat of integration" (Maxine Hong Kingston) and "a profound meditation on the divergent roles that storytelling, artmaking, and selfhood take on across the East-West divide" (Junot Diaz). A long-time member of the Writers’ Room Advisory Board, she understands how essential undisturbed time and space are for a working writer. Now, she’s kindly giving her own time to talk about Tiger Writing and the writing life at this fundraising anniversary event.
