On May 30, 2014, four vanguards of the Asian literary scene, Doretta Lau (How Does A Single Blade Of Grass Thank The Sun), Tom Cho (Look Who’s Morphing), Kevin Chong (Northern Dancer) and Nancy Lee (The Age), assembled at Pulpfiction Books (2422 Main Street, Vancouver) to read passages from their latest novels and publications and to speak with Ricepaper Magazine.
As Ricepaper’s Outreach Director, Gavin aims to connect people throughout the world interested in relatable, meaningful content by Asians. He was born and raised in North Vancouver and spent his formative twenties in Seoul where his concept of multiculturalism transformed. He is particularly fond of pan-Asian themed stories of inter-cultural exchange and he is the founder of weshareinterests.com, a site he thinks you might enjoy since you are reading this. He encourages marginalized voices to build their own world so they are not stuck in someone else’s.
