Tune into APEX Express on KPFA (94.1 or www.kpfa.org) on May 15 at 7pm, as we bring you an Asian and Pacific Islander view from the bay and around the world.
KPFA is in fund drive and we will be asking you to support our programming tonight. We’ll be in conversation with contributors of the new anthologyDismantle—writing from the Voices of Our Nation (VONA) workshop. The VONA workshop was founded by and for writers of color—it was conceived of as a revolution. Through anthologies like Dismantle, writers of color are starting to fill in America’s white washed history.
We’ll be in conversation with two VONA contributors: David Mura and Sasha Hom.
Sasha Hom was adopted from Korea by Chinese American Oakland-Cali natives and grew up in Berkeley. She is a writer-performer-mother of three. Her work is in numerous anthologies including Dismantle.
VONA board Member David Mura is the author of memoirs including Turning Japanese, poetry volumes and the novel Famous Suicides of the Japanese Empire. David Mura is faculty at Stonecoast MFA program
