Suter Theatre
208 Bridge Street
Hear from three contributors to the new anthology, A Clear Dawn: New Asian Voices From Aotearoa New Zealand: Angelique Kasmara, Rose Lu and Chris Tse. In celebrating the publication of the first anthology of Asian writing in Aotearoa, we explore several key questions: Is there is increased visibility of, and reader/audience interest in, Asian voices? What challenges and opportunities—personal and/or professional—impact on Asian NZ writers? Brannavan Gnanalingam will invite perspectives from the three contributors: novelist Angelique Kasmara (Isobar Precinct), nonfiction writer Rose Lu (All Who Live on Islands) and poet Chris Tse (He’s So Masc). Chaired by Brannavan Gnanalingam. Thanks to Auckland University Press, The Cuba Press, NZ Society of Authors and Asia NZ Foundation
