Play • 47 min

Has your superstitious grandma ever told you myths that you haven’t been able to forget? In this episode of AAWW Radio, we have critically acclaimed cartoonist and Last Night’s Reading creator Kate Gavino, who has invited some of her favorite writers to read short stories about Asian grandmas. Kate Gavino’s new graphic novel Sanpaku explores the Japanese myth through the eyes of Marcine, an impressionable Filipina preteen who lives for her grandmother’s eccentric stories. She is joined by The Verge's Angela Chen, Little A editor Vivian Lee, Catapult's Matt Ortile, and editor and author Rakesh Satyal-- and together they share stories about their grandmothers, and all the feelings of love, loss, and guilt that come with them.
