Home and Heart
Bendigo Writers Festival
As a student in the United States in the 1980s, Min Jin Lee discovered through education and reading that every person - no matter what race, gender or class - contains within themselves "historical multitudes". She never dreamed that she would find a way, in fiction, to give voice to those multitudes. Alice Pung, growing up Asian in Australia, blending in was the goal, to escape notice. Now, successful and respected, she contemplates how - or if - bigotry has changed in the next generation of class-defined society. Join these two gifted writers as they consider how growing up Asian shaped their ideas and fuelled their writing.
