Exciting news! Acclaimed author of Interior Chinatown, Charles Yu is coming to Lexington!


This visit is made possible through donations to Lexington Education Foundation and the Lexington in Conversation project led by LHS educator Samantha St. Lawrence.

All LHS students read Charles Yu’s book this summer and have completed in-class projects this fall. Interior Chinatown is a deeply personal novel about race, pop culture, immigration, assimilation, and escaping the roles we are forced to play. Mr. Yu will visit students throughout the day on Nov. 3 and then the community is invited to hear a discussion between Samantha St. Lawrence and Charles Yu in the evening at the LHS auditorium. 

This is a special honor to welcome Mr. Yu to Lexington and we hope to see you at the evening event!
