DESCRIPTION

The Asian Art Museum and the Tenderloin Museum are pleased to collaborate on a literary reading featuring Vietnamese American authors Andrew Lam and Angie Chau. Both have written extensively about coming of age in San Francisco in the 1980s through the lens of the Vietnamese immigrant experience. Their personal narratives are in dialogue with the current exhibition at the Tenderloin Museum, Voice of the Central City: The Tenderloin Times, 1977–94, which explores the history and impact of the Pulitzer Prize–nominated Tenderloin community newspaper.
