Notes from the Field: Aimee Liu’s Ethnographic Novel, Glorious Boy

A Six Week Reading Workshop at Hugo House

When: Tuesdays, June 21 – July 26, 2022 @ 7:10pm – 9:10pm.

Where: Hugo House, Seattle, WA via Zoom

“Breastfeeding. God help me. Am I ready for this?” writes expectant protagonist and ethnographer Claire Durant as she observes a mother and child. Set in the Andaman Islands—a British penal colony in the Indian Ocean—on the eve of its WWII occupation by Japan, Glorious Boy makes motherhood as far-flung a destination as a remote archipelago. In this series, we will discuss points of craft in each week’s reading and compile field notes from our own lives in a series of optional prompts. Bring a notebook, a copy of Glorious Boy, and a sense of adventure!

All students in this class will receive a 20% off discount at Elliott Bay Book Company to purchase the course reading list.
