Seeing Ghosts: Kat Chow and Josie Huang in Conversation
Loss, generational differences and what shapes our ideas of home: These are the subjects that drive journalist Kat Chow’s work. As a founding member of NPR’s “Code Switch,” and contributor to “Radiolab” and the New York Times Magazine, among others, her interest in these topics took a deeply personal turn with the unexpected death of her mother. Propelled by grief, Chow set out to explore three generations of her Chinese American family and their emigration from Hong Kong to Cuba and, eventually, America. The resulting memoir, Seeing Ghosts, is a provocative and transformational meditation on loss. Join Kat and KPCC/LAist Asian American Communities Correspondent Josie Huang for a wide-ranging virtual conversation.
