[Upcoming Reading] A.S.I.A. Social Justice Week, 11/18

I'm reading at the Atwood Little Theatre at the Atwood Memorial Center on St. Cloud State University on November 18th to celebrate Asian Students in Action's great Social Justice Week. This year's theme is "Open Your Eyes, Here I Stand: Asian American," and it all starts at 5pm, but I'll be around to talk with many of you before and after, as well.

The discussion will center on how Asian Americans have been invisible in American society and Institutions-politics, entertainment, education, etc-and the effects of this on our community. I'll examine some of the personal issues its had on me as I grew up in the Midwest, and what I've done over the years to overcome those obstacles and gain visibility for myself and our community.

I'm looking forward to seeing many of you there!
