I just found these photos in my to-do pile. I’m about 3 months late, but as the saying goes, better than never.
I’ll be reading my flash piece for PEN/Guernica on May 17, Saturday, at BookCourt. The event is part of Lit Crawl Brooklyn, and it’ll run from 6:15pm until 7pm. Here’s the 411:

OPEN CITY: The Diaspora Next Door
November 7, 4pm – powerHouse Ground Floor
So say you head out to Flushing for the food and New Jersey to see your fam, but who’s telling the stories of the immigrant communities, whose stories are often obscured by language barriers and economic segregation? Luis Francia, Hari Kondabolu, and Sung Woo will act as your tour guide through the diasporic landscape of Mom-and-pop shops, strip malls, and cart food in the outer boroughs and Jersey, the honorary borough. Asian American Literary Award winner Luis Francia’s new chapbook is populated by manongs, teen rappers, and a comfort woman relocated to Queens. Stand up comic Hari Kondabolu–star of Comedy Central and “a national comedic treasure” (The Stranger)–talks about coming of age in Queens. And Sung J. Woo’s Everything Asian features a Korean American family running a shop in a depressed New Jersey town. Reading headlined by Organizing Fellows of the Workshop’s OPEN CITY: Blogging Urban Change, an innovative anti-gentrification blog featuring writers gathering testimony from immigrants in Chinatown, Sunset Park and Flushing.
