Public Scholars Presentation
Cathy Bao Bean – author of ‘Living and Laughing by the Chopsticks-Fork Principle’
Join us for a unique window into the experience of a bicultural family and a refreshing, light-hearted discussion of the diversity in our lives. Cathy’s memoir is a humorous and poignant telling of her experiences as a Chinese immigrant growing up in the United States. She uses her own experiences to explain how to reconcile the expectations of families and societies at large and explores how to re-think our cultural heritages. Cathy has presented her ideas to audiences at over 450 universities, libraries and professional associations in the US and China. Please join us in giving her a warm welcome to Harding Township.
Following the lecture there will be refreshments and an opportunity for discussion with the presenter.
This program is funded by the New Jersey Council for the Humanities.
