Date: Thursday, May 2, 2013
Time: 5:00-6:00 pm
Location: Library 820P

Dinner afterwards--restaurant to be announced

APIA members will meet to discuss the book:

Balancing Two Worlds: Asian American College Students Tell Their Life Stories edited by Andrew Garrod and Robert Kilkenny    

Balancing Two Worlds highlights themes surrounding the creation of Asian American identity. This book contains fourteen first-person narratives by Asian American college students, most of whom have graduated during the first five years of the twenty-first century. Their engaging accounts detail the students' very personal struggles with issues of assimilation, gender, religion, sexuality, family conflicts, educational stereotypes, and being labeled the "model minority." Some of the students relate stories drawn from their childhood and adolescent experiences, while others focus more on their college experiences at Dartmouth.  

Annie Liu is ordering copies of Balancing Two Worlds. If you're interested in getting a copy, please email Annie Liu. 

Please RSVP Annie Liu at for the book discussion and/or the dinner.
