Shawn Wong to Deliver Friends of the Libraries Annual Lecture

Submitted by Anis Bawarshi on

The novel No-No Boy by John Okada, originally published in 1957, was barely read during the author’s lifetime. Shawn Wong, UW professor of English, will share how young Asian American writers urged a new audience to recognize the book’s importance and launched its journey from obscurity to canonical work in Asian American literature.  More information can be found here.
