FORA.tv Speaker - Linda Furiya
Growing up in rural Indiana, Linda Furiya was from an early age ingrained with a sense of diversity of food and country living. Furiya attended Purdue University in West Lafayette, Indiana. Initially working in marketing for companies in West Virginia and Washington D.C., Furiya relocated to the West Coast. Inspired from the Asian American scene in the Bay Area, she self-syndicated a column called "From Where I Stand." For five years, this monthly column was published in Japanese American and Canadian newspapers in San Diego, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Sacramento, Seattle, Montreal, and Toronto Canada. Furiya also lived and wrote articles on food, travel, and sex in Beijing, China. Furiya writes a column for The San Francisco Chronicle on Japanese and Chinese cooking.
Linda Furiya lives in Vermont with her son. Bento Box In The Heartland: My Japanese Girlhood In Whitebread America, is her first novel.
