Jo-Ann Yeoh Farewell Reading

You are invited to attend a reading by our spring resident, Jo-Ann Yeoh, who will be reading selections from her work. Jo-Ann will also answer questions about her work and writing process. The reading is free, but please bring something to drink if you like and join us in the house where Jack Kerouac wrote The Dharma Bums.

Jo-Ann Yeoh grew up in Malaysia and lives in Singapore. Her first novel, Impractical Uses of Cake, won the Epigram Books Fiction Prize 2018 and in 2020, her story Dog Tiger Horse won the Boston Review’s Aura Estrada Short Story Contest. She is currently working on her second novel and a collection of short stories on the theme of family and food in Southeast Asia.
