Zhang (Kimberly Chang) grew up in upstate New York, lived in China and Hong Kong, and currently makes her home in Western Massachusetts.  She is a writer of hybrid non/fiction stories and forms, with a focus on “Chinese” and “American” identities, communities, and border crossings.  Trained in the disciplines of anthropology and psychology, she has written ethnographies of diasporic communities on both sides of the Pacific.  She is an alumni of the Juniper Summer Writing Institute and was a writing resident at the Vermont Studio Center.  Her book, Accomplice to Memory, combines memoir, fiction, and documentary photographs to explore the limits and possibilities of truth telling across generations and geographies.  An excerpt from the book was published in The Massachusetts Review.  She currently teaches at Hampshire College in Amherst, MA.
