Behind the Book with Curtis Chin

7:00 PM – 8:30 PM
Symmes Township


Join us as we welcome author and filmmaker Curtis Chin. Chin will read from his new memoir, Everything I Learned, I Learned in a Chinese Restaurantfollowed by a Q&A and book signing. The moving and comedic memoir about coming of age and coming out traces the author's journey through 1980's Detroit as he navigated rising xenophobia, the AIDS epidemic, and the Reagan Revolution to find his voice as a writer and activist — all set against the backdrop of his family's popular Chinese restaurant.

Curtis Chin has received awards from ABC/Disney Television, New York Foundation for the Arts, the National Endowment for the Arts, and many more. He has written for TV and film and has screened his social justice documentaries at over 600 locations in nearly 20 countries. Find out more at
