Join The Office of Multicultural Affairs from 6 - 7:30 p.m. on April 2 in the Multipurpose Room as we celebrate Asian, Pacific Islander, Desi American (APIDA) Heritage at BGSU with keynote speaker Putsata Reang.


Putsata Reang is an author and a journalist whose writings have appeared in The New York Times, Politico, The Guardian, Ms, and The Seattle Times, among other publications. Born in Cambodia and raised in rural Oregon, Reang has lived and worked in more than a dozen countries. She is an alum of several prestigious fellowships and residencies, and teaches memoir writing at the University of Washington's School of Professional & Continuing Education.  Her latest book, Ma and Me, explores the long legacy of inherited trauma and the crushing weight of cultural and filial duty, in the context of her journey to come out to her family and claim her identity.  The book has won the Pacific Northwest Book Award and was a finalist for the Washington State Book Award, the Lambda Literary Award, and the Dayton Literary Peace Prize.


Appetizers will be served.
