Boston Book Festival: Story Time: Jason Chin and Andrea Wang

October 18, 2021 @ 3:00 pm - 3:30 pm EDT


About this event

Recently named a Boston Globe-Horn Book honor book, Watercress, written by Andrea Wang and illustrated by Jason Chin, tells an understated but deeply moving story about a seemingly simple family meal that’s laden with significance for its Chinese American family. In this storytime, artist Jason Chin and author Andrea Wang will introduce viewers to this aptly bittersweet story and Chin’s exquisitely detailed watercolor illustrations, which mirror the theme by utilizing both Chinese and Western brushwork techniques. Don’t miss your opportunity to explore Boston’s Chinatown while enjoying a Story Walk based on Watercress! See our website for details. Sponsored by Simmons University.

Donations made during registration or during the session itself will go to support the Boston Globe‘s Globe Santa program, gifting new books and toys to children in need this holiday season!

Please note:

The Valley of Writers team scours the web looking for the most inspiring, elevating, and accessible events that we can share as a service to our readers.
The big idea is that in a virtual arena, more people can participate. Geographical boundaries matter less.
The events we list are virtual and can be attended by writers from wherever they are in the world.
Unless otherwise stated, we are not affiliated with and do not benefit financially from the events we post. Listing is not an endorsement of the content, opinions, or products promoted by the event organizers we feature here.
Please verify all dates, times and other event details as these are subject to change and are beyond our control.

What qualifies an event as ‘lit’? Any event that we think would teach writers of fiction, memoir, and poetry useful skills, inspire them to produce great work, remind them of the power of this work we do and build stronger, mutually beneficial ties between writers and other creatives.
