The event will begin with opening and concluding music by Grass Valley Taiko, a local group that specializes in the traditional Japanese drumming style.

Following their performance, Charles Yu will take the stage for an engaging and insightful conversation about his writing process, his literary influences, and the themes that drive his work. The format will be a conversational style discussion with plenty of time for Q&A from the audience!
