USCET’s Asian American Authors Series brings outstanding Asian American authors to Chinese audiences to introduce their literary works and discuss their experiences with American multiculturalism.
This series was launched in November 2012 with award-winning Chinese American Author Gish Jen at Beijing Foreign Studies University. Following the successful launch, USCET brought a number of other acclaimed Asian American authors to China including Shawn Wong (2013), Helen Zia (2017), Cheryl Tan (2018), Karen Yamashita (2018), and Shirley Lim (2018).
In Fall 2021, USCET revived its Asian American Authors Series by shifting to a virtual book club format over Zoom. Book club members are largely Chinese students and scholars with an interest in literature and the US, hailing from over 35 different universities across China. Featured titles and authors include Ghosts of Gold Mountain (Gordon H. Chang), The Making of Asian America (Erika Lee), and American Knees (Shawn Wong).
