American Born Chinese by Gene Luen Yang“American Born Chinese” by Gene Yang is a powerful graphic novel that interweaves the stories of three seemingly unrelated characters:

  1. Jin Wang – A Chinese-American student who moves to a new neighborhood and faces isolation as the only Chinese-American student in his new school.
  2. Monkey King – A legendary figure from Chinese folklore.
  3. Chin-Kee – A character who embodies negative Chinese stereotypes, causing trouble during his annual visits to his cousin Danny.

Their lives and narratives eventually converge in an unexpected twist, forming an action-packed modern fable. “American Born Chinese” is a thrilling and thought-provoking work, culminating in a remarkable climax.

Please join us for all our upcoming in-person Book Club meetings. We also will offer Zoom platform meetings for those not comfortable meeting in person at this time.
