We will launch our first ever GAPIMNY reading group with a discussion of Russell C. Leong’s short story collection Phoenix Eyes and Other Stories. Our discussion will specifically focus on “Phoenix Eyes,” “No Bruce Lee”, and “Geography One.” Author Russell Leong will join us in an open discussion about these short stories and our experiences reading queer Asian American literature.
Copies of Phoenix Eyes and Other Stories (used, hard, or digital copies) can be found on amazon.com.
