2015 marked the 20th anniversary of Ricepaper magazine and to celebrate it we selected some of the best writing for an anthology. Considered a pioneering periodical devoted to Asian-Canadian writing, the magazine shifted from predominantly arts and culture reporting to the publication of original literature over the years. It has both witnessed and cultivated the maturation of an Asian-Canadian literary tradition. Many of today’s most acclaimed Asian-Canadian writers were first published in the pages of Ricepaper. Please join us for this special evening as we celebrate the years of Ricepaper!
This book launch will feature readings from:
- Carolyn Nakagawa
- C.E. Gatchalian
- Jackie Wong
- Rita Wong
- Crecien Bencio
“AlliterAsian is an intriguing and multi-faceted record of Asian-Canadian writing that pays homage to the legacy of Ricepaper and its contribution to the evolving and increasingly diverse landscape of Canadian literature.” – Arsenal Press
