Allan Cho speaking at the LiterASIAN reception this evening. In the heart of Vancouver’s International Village, Thai Town Restaurant will be the host of this year’s reception for LiterASIAN. All eight authors will be present for guests to mingle with, and their books will be available to be bought and signed if desired. Food will be provided with music entertainment and a cash bar is also on site. This year’s reception will also serve as the book launch of Currents: A Ricepaper Anthology. After completing its first year as a digital magazine, Ricepaper has gathered the best writing it has posted online, and compiled it into a physical anthology. Authors of the pieces in the anthology will be present to perform readings, and copies of Currents will be available for purchase. The announcement of the Jim Wong-Chu Emerging Writers’ Award recipient will also take place this night. www.literasian.com #acww #literasian #vpl #yvr #authors #writers

It's been a hot minute since I've last played and posted 😱 summer break was great I've spent two weeks in cologne did a loooot of shopping and the other 4 week I legit just chilled and did nothing 😴 school just started two weeks ago, it still takes me quite some time to get back in but it's my last year of design school which I am so so happy about ! Since I just started playing again today there is so so so much to do in my town which I am quite happy about because I'm not happy with my town in general, tbh I would just like to delete my town but I've came so so far with this one so I think I'm just slowly going to erase everything, put all the flowers on the down side of the town, find a new path and re do my town, which I am actually very very excited about, I'm so in the mood to play it makes me happy 🐰😊💕 have a very very nice evening/night/day ! Love you all #acnl #animalcrossing #nintendo #3ds #game #gaming #acww #animalcrossingnewleaf #fall #autumn

Janie Chang always wanted to be a writer. She had an epiphany and now she is not only a writer but does it full time. "Her second novel, Dragon Springs Road (William Morrow Paperbacks 2017), was released in January 2017, and has been on national bestseller lists for the Globe and Mail and the Toronto Star. She is also the founder and main organizer of Authors for Indies, a Canada-wide grassroots event in support of independent bookstores. Born in Taiwan, Janie has lived in the Philippines, Iran, Thailand, Canada, and New Zealand.

Goofing around with the oh so funny and brilliant Jen Sookfong Lee. ECW Press published Jen’s third novel, The Conjoined, in the fall of 2016. She was born and raised in East Vancouver, but now lives in North Burnaby with her son and hoodlum of a dog." www.literasian.com #acww #literasian #vpl #yvr #authors #writers
Getting a selfie with the inspiring Catherine Hernandez "Scarborough (Arsenal Pulp Press) is Catherine’s first full-length fiction and she is so very honoured to have received the Asian Canadian Writers’ Workshop Emerging Writers’ Award and have been shortlisted for the Half the World Global Literati Award after just trying her hand at the art of fiction storytelling. Scarborough was written after several years working as a home daycare provider to Scarborough children." - www.literasian.com #acww #literasian #vpl #yvr #authors #writers
Expectation VS Reality 😂😩
This is my second year attending LiterASIAN. This year is poignant as our founder Jim Wong-Chu passed away in July. Last night I dreamt Jim was speaking to me. He said "It's Jim, why do you keep calling me Jim Wong-Chu?" Maybe because he was so special you needed the full name. Please check out the events. Many are free and all are very reasonably priced. There are a few tickets left for tonight's reception at Thai Town Restaurant. Only $10.00. https://literasian.com/ #acww #literasian #vpl #yvr #authors #writers
