“Chop Suey and Apple Pie”
Speaker: Mai-Lon Gittlesohn
Mai-Lon Gittlesohn’s poetry chapbook Chop Suey and Apple Pie appeared in 2014 and has been termed ‘a true treasure.’ Mai-Lon, who considers herself a poet/memorist, offers poems that represent her family as third generation Chinese Americans, their memories and her experiences growing up in Berkeley.
Ms. Gittlesohn taught elementary school in the Del Mar School District for 23 years and has offered Memoir Writing to Seniors at the San Dieguito Adult School. In 2012 she received her MFA in Creative Writing from Oregon’s Pacific University.
