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.
