East Eats West: Writing in Two Hemispheres

Andrew Lam, Author, East Eats West; Writer; Co-founder, New America Media

Lam, who emigrated from Vietnam as a child, looks at how the East and West are changing each other. From cuisine and martial arts to sex and self-esteem, from Buddhism to anime, Lam will discuss and explore the marvelous world where two hemispheres meld into one. Praised for his wit and style, he will share his insights into the cultural consequences of immigration from Asia to the West.
