Author Talk: Helene Wong, Inside Outside
26 July 2016 6:00pm — 7:30pm
Author of Being Chinese: A New Zealander’s Story, Helene Wong, presents a talk first given as the Michael King Lecture at the Auckland Writers’ Festival in May 2016.
In contemplation of the ambivalence many New Zealand Chinese feel about themselves and their place in Aotearoa, Helene considers what it means to be New Zealand born, yet placed somehow ‘outside’ of New Zealand culture.
