Journalist Ann Hui visits StoryFest 2019 to talk family and food
October 20, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm$20
Globe & Mail reporter Ann Hui will visit Greenwood’s StoryFest 2019 to discuss her book, Chop Suey Nation. In 2016, she drove across Canada – from Victoria to Fogo Island – to write about small-town Chinese restaurants and the families who run them. It was only after the story was published that she discovered her own family could have been included: her parents had run their own Chinese restaurant before she was born. This discovery, and the realization that there was so much of her own history she didn’t yet know, set her on a time-sensitive mission: to understand how, after generations living in a poverty-stricken area of Guangdong, China, her family had somehow wound up in Canada. She weaves her own family’s story with that of the small-town Chinese restaurant owners across the country in Chop Suey Nation.
