Zine Workshop + Conversation with Delta Visiting Chair Hua Hsu

Delta Innovation Hub 210 Spring Street

Zine Workshop + Conversation with Delta Visiting Chair Hua Hsu

Pulitzer Prize-winning author Hua Hsu will be in residence at UGA March 20-21, 2024 as the Delta Visiting Chair for Global Understanding, an annual public humanities program of the Willson Center for Humanities and Arts. At this event, Hsu will participate in a leisurely zine-making workshop that will include a conversation with Gerald Maa, director and editor of The Georgia Review.

Zine-making materials and light snacks will be provided and participants will be able to continue working on their zines during the conversation, which will begin at 5 p.m. No prior zine-making experience is necessary and works-in-progress are welcome. Lindsey Reynolds, art librarian of the Lamar Dodd School of Art, will be available to offer support and guidance to participants, and the Dodd Art Library's zine collection will be on hand for browsing.

Hua Hsu is a staff writer at The New Yorker and the author of A Floating Chinaman: Fantasy and Failure Across the Pacific (2016) and the memoir Stay True (2022), which won the 2023 Pulitzer Prize for Memoir or Autobiography and the 2022 National Book Critics Circle award in autobiography. He began creating zines about music, film, literature and other arts and cultural topics while in his teens and currently publishes Suspended in Time, which he describes as "a series of zines about music and life + an occasional record label."

Hsu's visit is presented in partnership with the Center for Asian Studies and The Georgia Review. It is part of the Willson Center’s Global Georgia public event series and the UGA Humanities Festival. Hsu's residency will also include a reading and conversation with Ed Pavlić, Distinguished Research Professor of English, African American studies, and creative writing, at 5:30 p.m. on March 21 in the Georgia Museum of Art.
