Dorothy Chan


This event is co-sponsored by L.E. Phillips Memorial Public Library.

Join Dorothy Chan, the newest assistant professor of creative writing at the University of Wisconsin–Eau Claire, as she reads from her latest collection of poetry, Revenge of the Asian Woman. Continuing with the themes of food, sexuality, culture, and fetishes developed in her previous collections, the reading will showcase Chan’s latest work as well as her reverence for pop culture, kitsch, and excess.

>> Our book sales committee will have copies of Revenge of the Asian Woman available for purchase at this event. Please join us for an autographing session following the presentation.

DOROTHY CHAN is the author of Revenge of the Asian Woman, Attack of the Fifty-Foot Centerfold, and the chapbook Chinatown Sonnets. Her work has appeared or is forthcoming in The American Poetry Review, Academy of American Poets, The Cincinnati Review, Diode Poetry Journal, Quarterly West, and elsewhere.
