The Blog of Gene Luen Yang - I'm Sick...
I'm Sick... 
...so I'll be missing the 2008 Spring Conference of the Colorado Language Arts Society, unfortunately. I'm really sorry to be missing this-- it sounds like it's going to be an inspired gathering of teachers, writers, and other logophiles. But this season's flu has really knocked me out, and if I go I'll end up being its Trojan Horse.

Milpitas Public Library

Chop Chop 

Over at his blog, Dr. K has been discussing Chop Chop , the Chinese mascot of DC Comics' superteam The Blackhawks. Chop Chop is an ancestor to my character Cousin Chin-kee. Anyone who is interested in the history of stereotypes will find these posts fascinating.
