By the Book: Transpacific – An Asian Canadian Literary Journey

Transpacific - An Asian Canadian Literary Journey is an exhibition including essays and posters, organised by the High Commission of Canada in Malaysia, aiming to highlight Asian Canadian literature and writers. We speak to its curator, Vincent Ternida about putting it together, what it feels like to represent the Asian Canadian writing community, and how his cultural identity has shaped his own writing. And then in Footnotes, we discuss the various ways of being introduced to writers and books, outside of bookstores. 

Produced by: Lee Chwi Lynn, Sharmilla Ganesan

Presented by: Lee Chwi Lynn, Sharmilla Ganesan
