Some Favorite Writers: Fae Myenne Ng

When: Thursday, May 30, 2024 7:30 pm
Where: Hammer Museum

Best-selling author Fae Myenne Ng’s new memoir, Orphan Bachelors, offers a personal, timely portrait of San Francisco’s Chinatown and of a family building a life in a country bent on their exclusion. Hua Hsu called Orphan Bachelors, “so many treasures at once: an enthralling memoir, an act of reckoning, a history of American exclusion and Chinatown resilience, an attempt to conjure the vast horizons that her forebears were never allowed to imagine.”

Organized and hosted by author and UCLA professor Mona Simpson. Copresented by the UCLA Department of English.

Fae Myenne Ng is the author of bestseller and PEN/Faulkner Fiction finalist Bone and American Book Award winner Steer Toward Rock. She has been the recipient of fellowships from the Rome Prize, American Academy of Arts and Letters, Guggenheim Foundation, Lannan Foundation, NEA, Radcliffe Institute, Bellagio Center, and Rockefeller Foundation.
