Muscle Memory: Asian American Women on Violence & Safety with Jenny Liou and Jess Ng (In-Person)

Poet and former professional MMA fighter Jenny Liou will read from her debut poetry collection Muscle Memory, and be in conversation with Muay Thai fighter and designer Jess Ng around themes of diaspora, sport, and violence. After the reading, Jess Ng will lead a self-defense class for attendees, which she began teaching this past year after the uptick in violence against Asian American women.
