Authors Danielle Evans (Before You Suffocate Your Own Fool Self), Alexandra Kleeman (You Too Can Have a Body Like Mine), Lincoln Michel (Upright Beasts), Tony Tulathimutte (Private Citizens), and Jenny Zhang (Dear Jenny, We Are All Find).

This Asian-American Life - Columbia APA Heritage Month Reading

  • Book Culture

As a nod to NPR's "This American Life," APAHM presents "This Asian-American Life," an evening reading with award-winning writers HUA HSU, TANWI NANDINI ISLAM, LARISSA PHAM, and TONY TULATHIMUTTE.

Hear them read about their personal experiences as Asian Americans, and through their storytelling, celebrate and reflect on what it means to be Asian-American.

This is a FREE event! Refreshments will be served.
