Putsata Reang, award-winning author, will visit Wright State University to speak about her latest book, "Ma and Me," to kick off WSU's celebration of Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) Heritage Month. Reang's talk will take place at 5:30pm in the Student Union Atrium. The talk is free and open to the public. A book signing and reception will follow.

"Ma and Me" is a powerful memoir about growing up in a Cambodian American refugee family and coming to terms with one's queer identity. The book has received critical acclaim, winning the Pacific Northwest Book Award and being shortlisted for the Washington State Book Award, the Lambda Literary Award, and the Dayton Literary Peace Prize in 2023.

Reang's visit is made possible with generous contributions from the Carol Cline Fund for Visiting Writers and the School of Social Sciences and International Studies with the College of Liberal Arts and from Wright-Patt Credit Union's Community Support Fund.
