From Hippocampus:

About the Series: Stories on Sundays are bi-monthly readings from a recent/forthcoming work of creative nonfiction followed by an author interview + audience Q&A. Your registration helps fund our contributor payments and other costs associated with running our journal.

Kicking off our Stories on Sundays series is Slow Noodles: A Cambodian Memoir of Love, Loss, and Family Recipes by Chantha Nguon.

In this online event that’s sure to be packed with flavor, you will hear readings from this much-anticipated memoir, then hear the story behind the book and much more in a Q&A with Chantha, along with co-author Kim Green. Chantha’s daughter Clara Kim, who wrote the book’s epilogue, will also join in on the discussion.

This event is especially meaningful for us: In 2021, Hippocampus Magazine published “The Gradual Extinction of Softness” by Chantha Nguon with Kim Green, an essay which was later named a best essay of the year (and republished) by Longreads.
