Artist Interview: Andrew Lam at Feast of Words

Author Andrew Lam was interviewed by Odette Keeley for New America Media at last month’s Feast of Words. Lam served up a tasty reading about Pho and the diaspora’s influence on America.

Andrew will be talking about his book East Eats West: Writing in Two Hemispheres next Tuesday, December 7 at Book Passage. Unfortunately it is the very same night as our December Feast of Words. However, if you happen to be near the Ferry Building that night and are in search of literary entertainment, you should check it out.

Speaking of Feast of Words, “Naughty or Nice” is our theme in December. Everything overlaps at SOMArts and we’ve been getting all kinds of attention for Muni Diaries’ role in the I Live Here:SF exhibit. Turns out, Andrew was a guest at a recent Muni Diaries event, where he  told stories about sex, love and longing on Muni. Very entertaining (and perhaps NSFW).
