The New American Experience

Language:
English

Another favorite – and important – panel each year at BookCon, join Jean Kwok, Shilpi Somaya, Alisha Rai, and Raakehee Mirchandani as they discuss how their own experiences and their families’ experiences in the U.S. helped shaped both themselves and their books. These writers all have non-traditional definitions of what it means to be ‘American’ and those unique perspectives are captured in their writing.
