*Almost* American: A Book Chat and Zine-Making Working

This online workshop will open with conversation about teachable moments in Robin Ha’s Almost American Girl: An Illustrated Memoir— e.g. isolation immigrants experience when overcoming culture shock and adjusting to a new language, school, employment, and social life. Ha’s story of arriving to the United States from Korea also reveals how the umbrella term “Asian American” obscures the vast diversity of identities and cultures. After the discussion, the group will create a personal identity zine page together while discussing ways to adapt this project for students. *No art skills required—just paper and markers.
