The event will open with a READING of an excerpt from The Conscience of Taiwan: The Memoirs of Su Beng (a work being written by Felicia Lin in collaboration with Su Beng).
Next will be a DISCUSSION between Felicia and Su Beng in Taiwanese and English, followed by Q&A with the audience (translation will be provided).
The event will conclude with a SCREENING of the trailer of documentary film, Almost Home: Taiwan, a documentary by Victoria Linchong that examines the legacy of political repression and the emergence of Taiwan’s democracy through the reunion of a family after 22 years.
