Listen to eloquent writer, actor, director and Listener film critic Helene Wong talk about her recent memoir Being Chinese: A New Zealander’s Story.

Preferring invisibility, Wong grew up resisting her Chinese identity, but in 1980 she travelled to her father’s home village in southern China and came face-to-face with her ancestral past.

Wong received a standing ovation at the Auckland Writers Festival earlier this year not just for her ability to convey her discovery of her own identity as a Chinese New Zealander, but for providing her audience with a window through which they could see themselves. This memoir is a story for us all.

This session must not be missed!
