Herrick hosted its first Cultural Heritage Series with speaker Jennifer Lee, author of The Fortune Cookie Chronicles and member of the Asian American Writers' Workshop. 

Jennifer Lee spoke about her book, in which she traces the history of the Chinese-American experience through the lens of food. As a tribute to America and its immigrants, the book speaks to the immigrant experience as a whole, and the way it has shaped our country.
