Join the MacDowell community and the family and friends of Knopf/ Anchor author Katherine Min, for the 2nd annual Katherine Min Fellowship celebration on Wednesday, June 1 at 7:00 p.m. (ET). The Katherine Min Fellowship is an endowed fellowship awarded annually to elevate the voices of Asian American writers at MacDowell. Penguin Random House is a longtime supporter of the MacDowell benefit.

MacDowell Fellow Alexander Chee will host this year’s celebration from the MacDowell NYC offices. The evening of readings and commemoration will feature Jessica Shi, 2020 Katherine Min Fellow; Lisa Ko, 2021 Katherine Min Fellow; and Kayla Min Andrews, writer and daughter of Katherine Min.

RSVP for the live stream here.

A writer and educator, Min held eight residencies at MacDowell between 1995 and 2013. During her 2001 residency, she finished the first draft of her 2008 novel Secondhand World, which was a finalist for the PEN/Bingham Prize. Along with the uninterrupted time to write, Min loved MacDowell for its picnic basket lunches, friendly pool games, late night dance parties, and the opportunity to meet and share work with other artists. She cherished the lifelong friendships she made at MacDowell and was a beloved member of the MacDowell community.
