Event description
Join us to celebrate the launch of Nina Mingya Powles' food memoir Tiny Moons: A Year of Eating in Shanghai, published by The Emma Press.

About this Event

Nina Mingya Powles and friends will be reading stories, essays and poems about food, to celebrate the launch of Nina's food memoir Tiny Moons: A Year of Eating in Shanghai, published by The Emma Press.

Tiny Moons is a collection of essays about food and belonging. Nina Mingya Powles journeys between Wellington, Kota Kinabalu and Shanghai, tracing the constants in her life: eating and cooking, and the dishes that have come to define her. Through childhood snacks, family feasts, Shanghai street food and student dinners, she attempts to find a way back towards her Chinese-Malaysian heritage.
