Chin to talk about his book at township library

Author Curtis Chin, whose book Everything I Learned, I Learned in a Chinese Restaurant details his upbringing and working in his family’s Cantonese restaurant in Detroit, will speak at the Bloomfield Township Public Library on Monday, March 25, at 7 p.m.

In preparation for his talk, the library will host a discussion of the book on Tuesday, March 12, at 7 p.m. Registration is required.

Chin confronts identity as he experiences racism as a Chinese American, and then again with the growing awareness that he is gay. Designated as a 2024 Michigan Notable Book, Chin’s story is told with insight, compassion and humor, the library stated.

“The library is honored to host Curtis Chin as part of our programming. We look forward to exploring his unique Detroit-based story and anticipate what promises to be an enriching experience with important lessons for all,” said librarian Amanda Itria.
