S2 Eps1 | Seeing the World Anew through Memoir

Recorded Live Event

There are some books you read that change the way you see the world. That was my experience reading the amazing recent memoirs by these two scholars and authors, who happen to be uncle and niece. Join us for a conversation about Mormonism, Zen Buddhism, raking, and cancer. Charles Shirō Inouye is Professor of Japanese Literature and Visual Culture at Tufts University and the author of the new memoir Zion Earth Zen Sky (Maxwell Institute, 2021). Melissa Inouye is a historian in the LDS Church History Department and the author of Crossings: A Bald Asian American Latter-day Saint Woman Scholar’s Ventures through Life, Death, Cancer, and Motherhood (Maxwell Institute, 2019).
