It’s time to get to know the readers for our next show this Thursday at Beverly Arts Center. First up is Ada Cheng.
Ada is a professor-turned-storyteller, solo performer, and storytelling show producer. She has been featured at storytelling shows and done her two solo performances all over the country. She is the producer and the host of four storytelling shows, including Pour One Out, Am I Man Enough?, Talk Stories: An Asian American/Asian Diaspora Storytelling Show, and Speaking Truths Series. She creates platforms for people to tell difficult and vulnerable stories as well as spaces for people and communities who may not have opportunities otherwise. Her motto: Make your life the best story you tell.
A professor at the University of Illinois-Chicago, Ada lives in Avondale and will be reading a piece about immigration. See Ada and the rest of our readers this Thursday night.
