The Girl Before Her with Line Papin and Jean Chen Ho (In Person)

Translated into English from French by Adriana Hunter and Lylan Dill, Line Papin‘s The Girl Before Her is described by Viet Thanh Nguyen (The Sympathizer) as “A fable, a dream, a nightmare, … a sharp little book that fits like a wedge between the ribs.” Join Kaya Press for an event featuring Papin in conversation with Jean Chen Ho, author of the novel Fiona and Jane, to discuss Asian diasporic identity, girlhood, and more.
