Dream of Words - Heart of the City Festival

ACWW's Jim Wong-Chu and long-time ACWW friend and supporter Evelyn Lau will be reading at the Sun Yat-sen Classical Chinese Garden on October 28!   Come join us in spending an afternoon concert with Evelyn Lau, Jim Wong-Chu and Silk Road Music. Vancouver’s Poet Laureate, Evelyn Lau’s next collection, A Grain of Rice, will be published later this fall. Joining Evelyn is poet, editor and historian Jim Wong-Chu, who promises to read from a new set of short stories that he is currently working on.  Jim is a founding member of the Asian Canadian Writers’ Workshop, and his book Chinatown Ghosts was the first poetry book published by an Asian Canadian writer.

Qiu Xia He and Andre Thibault are Silk Road Music, an award-winning duo that has taken Chinese-Western musical collaboration to a new level; their music will compliment the words of Evelyn and Jim. By donation to the Garden
