|Dear Students & Colleagues,
You are cordially invited to a Book Talk by Dr Susanna Ho on “Seeing (My World) through Writing”.
Date: Feb 19, 2016 (Friday)
Time: 12 noon – 1 pm
Venue: Library Multi-Function Room, LG4
(Light refreshments will be provided)
About the Talk
Dr Susanna Ho of HKUST’s Center for Language Education will discuss and compare her two novels: Mother’s Tongue: A Story of Forgiving and Forgetting and her very recent Who’s that Ant? Whose Dead End?. She will explore how she sees the world through the eyes of the main characters and how she makes sense of her world through writing. We hope the presentation will illuminate both Dr Ho’s work and the writing process itself.
Copies of Dr Ho’s work will be available for sale and signing.
About the Speaker
Dr Susanna Ho received her B.A. from University of Manitoba (majoring in English literature), her M.A. from City University of Hong Kong, and her PhD from Macquarie University, Sydney. At HKUST she teaches English for Academic Purposes and English for Specific Purposes at both postgraduate and undergraduate levels.
Through her research in second language writing, she explored her subjects’ writing practices and writing experiences and found each had a story to tell. This helped reignite her own childhood passion for writing. Her first novel, Mother’s Tongue: A Story of Forgiving and Forgetting, was published in the USA in 2013 and her latest Who’s that Ant? Whose Dead End? is due out in early 2016.
