Drawing from Forest History: How One Artist Uses Forest History as Source Material
June 9 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EDT
Shing Yin Khor’s National Book Award finalist graphic novel, The Legend of Auntie Po, follows a 12-year-old Chinese American camp cook as she tells Paul Bunyan stories (reinvented as an elderly Chinese matriarch named Auntie Po) in a Sierra Nevada logging camp during the 1800s. Join Shing Yin to talk about making graphic novels, adapting W. B. Laughead’s Paul Bunyan drawings and stories, integrating forest history research into historical fiction, and telling stories about Chinese-American contributions to forest history.
This event is hosted by the Forest History Society.
