Speaking allows us to understand ourselves; listening allows others to understand themselves. Patricia Selbert
The talk at Westmont College on April 19 was very lovely. I read excerpts from my novel and talked about how four different cultures influenced my identity.
The questions and conversation after the presentation were thoughtful and poignant and the discussion was lively and stimulating. I loved that many people in the audience shared their immigrant experiences, which brought the conversation to a deeper level.
Thanks to all who attended and Thanks to the Department of Sociology/Anthropology and The Office of Intercultural Programs at Westmont College for sponsoring this event!
