This event celebrates the publication of a collection of essays that explore Joy Kogawa’s work, both literary and activist. Essay contributors include Rocío G. Davis, Glenn Deer, Jonathan Hart, Julie McGonegal, Ann-Marie Metten, Tim Nieguth, Irene Sywenky, Barbara Turnbull, and Sheena Wilson. In a significant move forward from Kogawa criticism written to date, these essays give attention to Kogawa’s work beyond Obasan. This collection includes an interview with Joy Kogawa, which reveals both new biographical information and connections between Kogawa’s life story and written work.
