Date/Time: Fri Nov 08, 2019, 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Location: InterUrban Gallery, 1 East Hastings (entrance on Carrall St), Vancouver, BC


In this conversation between author Karen Tei Yamashita and writer/community organizer Erica Hiroko Isomura, lessons and stories from I Hotel (Coffee House press, 2010) are discussed through the context of Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside, a neighbourhood in which low-income, racialized, and stigmatized residents struggle for justice everyday. In a society increasingly divided by race, class, and beyond, what lessons can we take away from Yamashita’s work? The conversation and reading will be followed with a dialogue featuring members from SRO Collaborative and Right to Remain, and will be open to questions from the audience.
