Lisa bug’s inkless thinks, 2001-2010. Nearly a decade of my life, documented.
The Besto Pesto, fall/winter 2009-10. Still good for pesto recipes!
“Eating the Exotic: The Growing Acceptability of Chinese Cuisine in San Francisco, 1848-1915.” Read it online. This was my undergrad senior thesis, and I’ve gotten an unbelievable amount of mileage out of it. Most recently, Jennifer 8 Lee used it while writing her delightful book, The Fortune Cookie Chronicles!
“Asians and Asian Americans in the West.” This was a chapter I contributed to a high school/college-level textbook, Making of the American West: People and Perspectives. I wrote this in my first year of graduate school.
Exhibitions & shows
Reading: poem, “No Answer But This,” San Francisco Litcrawl 2011. I was asked to represent Kearny Street Workshop (along with five other deeply gifted writers) at their Litcrawl reading. Litcrawl is the final event of the annual Litquake festival; on this year the festival drew an estimated 15,000 people to SF for its week of literary goodness.
