VIDEO: At Home with Author Celeste Ng


The Asian American Writers Workshop (AAWW) is kicking off a new video series. You’ll hear from writers we love on what they’re reading right now, mutual aid efforts they are supporting, and more.

“We’re opening the series with Celeste Ng, the author of Everything I Never Told You and Little Fires Everywhere, which has been adapted into a TV miniseries on Hulu. Celeste, who this week was awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship, talks about finding comfort and purpose in making things with her hands, how the Book Industry Charitable Foundation is supporting booksellers and independent bookstores in these difficult times, and the poets she is turning to while social distancing.” -AAWW
