The Chinese-American Dream

Event Description:
A Ford Hall Forum and Rosenberg Institute event.

Featuring Anchee Min (author of The Cooked Seed) and moderated by Elif Armbruster (Associate Professor of English, Suffolk University). Co-presented with Suffolk University’s Rosenberg Institute of East Asian Studies.

Twenty years after penning her first memoir on growing up in China during the Cultural Revolution, author Anchee Min now releases The Cooked Seed: the true story of her journey to, and within, America. Min draws us in to bear witness to her trek from a land of deprivation to one of surrounding bounty that is just out of her reach. She works five jobs at once and suffers rape, exhaustion, and divorce. As these revolutionary personal events shape her world view, they culminate in the biggest shift of all: the birth of her daughter. Moderator Elif Armbruster helps Min present her unique immigration narrative within the universal struggle of building a life despite precious few fundamental tools.

Co-sponsored by the Ford Hall Forum at Suffolk University and the Rosenberg Institute for East Asian Studies. Free and open to the public; reserve your space here. For more information, please visit
