Asian Pacific Americans @ NBC Universal, Harvardwood and the Harvard Asian American Alumni Alliance (H4A) invite you to:
The RISE / APA Heritage Month Celebration
Featuring Jeff Yang AB '89, Phil Yu and Philip Wang, authors of the New York Times bestselling RISE: A Pop History of Asian America from the Nineties to Now
RISE is a love letter to and for Asian Americans — a vivid scrapbook of voices, emotions, and memories from an era in which our culture was forged and transformed, and a way to preserve both the headlines and the intimate conversations that have shaped our community into who we are today.
Join APAs @ NBC Universal, Harvardwood and the Harvard Asian American Alumni Alliance as the authors of RISE talk about the making of the book and raise a glass in celebration of our first in-person APA Heritage Month in three years. (Side note: It's also co-author Phil Yu's birthday! Cake will be provided.)
