The Accidental Biographer (September 15, 2012@ 2pm)

I'm honored to have been invited to speak at the New York Taiwan Center (on Saturday, September 15, 2012 at 2pm) about documenting the life of Su Beng. In 2004 I was compelled to meet Su Beng and to tell his story after reading an English translation of an article that he had written in the Taipei Times. It was entitled, What is the legal basis for human rights?

Since then I've been working on writing his biography. Right now the working title of the biography is: THE CONSCIENCE OF TAIWAN: THE MEMOIRS OF SU BENG.

I'll be talking about my perspective as Su Beng's biographer, what compelled me to take on this project to write Su Beng's biography, and my big picture ideas for this project. There will be a "sneak preview" of the biography. I will be reading an excerpt from THE CONSCIENCE OF TAIWAN. Q&A will follow.
