Mimi Kwa and Ruhi Lee
Moderator: Sonya Feldhoff
Mimi Kwa’s memoir House of Kwa opens as Mimi receives a letter advising that her father was suing her. In Ruhi Lee’s memoir Good Indian Daughter, Lee reflects on her disappointment when she learned she was pregnant with a girl. For both women these experiences prompted them to look back at the families that raised them, and in doing so explore complex cultural and generational divides.
House of Kwa is Mimi’s first book, a departure from her 20-year career as a TV reporter and news anchor for the ABC and Channel 9.
