“Tales from a Beautiful Island”

Event Date: Sunday, April 26 - 12:00 pm

In 2015, the literature event “Tales from a Beautiful Island” brought two cultural giants to the SF State campus: Huang Chunming, one of Taiwan’s most acclaimed writers, and Howard Goldblatt, translator of over fifty Chinese books and alum of the SF State Chinese program. Huang Chungming first read from a number of his short stories in Chinese and Taiwanese before Goldblatt shared his translations of the stories with the audience. A lively discussion and a book-signing followed the reading.
