Description
Maywan Shen Krach discusses her children’s book, “D is for Doufu.” She begins by explaining that the word ‘dofou’ is the English equivalent of ‘tofu’ and that she wanted to relate to what Americans know about Chinese culture. She talks about common ways that people can relate to Chinese traditions. She describes the connection between Chinese astrology and fate. She explains how Chinese culture was affected by communism, and how many people are trying to bury Chinese Confucianism. Krach talks about China’s policy of only having one child per household. She ends the interview by discussing how she wants to help children have a bilingual education.
