TEAACH Act Events


A Conversation with Award-Winning Writer Paula Yoo
Tuesday, April 4, 2023
2:00-3:00 pm Central Time via Zoom

Join us as we speak with writer Paula Yoo, author of From a Whisper to a Rallying Cry: The Killing of Vincent Chin and the Trial that Galvanized the Asian American Movement. This presentation will be co-hosted by Dr. Sarah Park Dahlen (The Center for Children’s Books) and Dr. Ebony Elizabeth Thomas’ Detroit Stories class (University of Michigan).

Paula Yoo is an award-winning author of children’s books, a former journalist, and current screenwriter who has merged her talents to create a thoroughly researched and reported nonfiction book, but with the intensity of a suspense movie thriller, and the intimate emotional character journey of a novel. As a Korean American who’s specialized in multicultural Asian American themed children’s books and having lived in Detroit working as a journalist for The Detroit News, Yoo is able to examine the controversial racial issues behind the Vincent Chin story with sensitivity, authority, and grace.
