A conversation with Hong Kong writer and journalist Karen Cheung about her new book The Impossible City: A Hong Kong Memoir. Drawing from her own experience, as well as interviews with musicians, protesters, and writers who have made Hong Kong their home, Karen will discuss what it means to write about a place experiencing turmoil and change as part of a community rather than from outside of it, in an increasingly fraught political terrain and media landscape.
