May 28, 2015, Thursday evening -- Reading Emma Larkin

On Valencia Street
She is reading Finding George Orwell in Burma, by Emma Larkin (in Chinese).  She's been interested in reading about Burma, after becoming involved with the Burmese community in the Bay Area through Doctors Without Borders. Lately she's read 1984, by George Orwell, which is loosely about Burma, and a graphic novel called Burma Chronicles, by Guy Delisle. She also just watched a film about Aung San Suu Kyi.
