Three Days Left for “Chicken Soup and Goji Berries”

The Kickstarter for our latest Graphic Novel, Chicken Soup and Goji Berries by Naomi Cui and Janice Liu, is in its final few days. We’ve met our target, so it will definitely be printed! But if you want a copy, you’d better check it out soon.

Chicken Soup and Goji Berries is a bilingual graphic novel in which the characters code switch fluently between English and Chinese, while readers can keep up by the translations on the left-facing pages of the story. It’s about food, family, migration, and magic. It’s on Kickstarter until Friday night!

Participated in one too many classes and writing groups where people’s eyes glaze over if you bring up world-building and fantastical plot ideas?
