Virginia Shih, Curator for the Southeast Asia Collection at the South/Southeast Asia Library at the University of California Berkeley, invited Dalang Publishing to present its titles at her library on Saturday, April 13, 2019: Cal Day 2019.
Cal Day is an annual event where UC Berkeley opens its doors and offers more than 300 lectures, tours, performances, demonstrations, and discussions. All events are free, campus-wide.
Virginia Shih gave opening remarks, followed by Ibu Lian’s presentation in the library’s intimate environment.
Audience members included Abby Scheel, Head of the Arts & Humanities Division at the UC Berkeley Library, and Sylvia Tiwon, Associate Professor of South & Southeast Asian Studies. The Q&A discussions that followed the presentation provided added interest to the event.
We are grateful and honored for the opportunity to participate in Cal Day.
