Conversation with Charles Yu

Conversation with Charles Yu

Please see the attached flyer for Professor Naoko Wake’s invitation to attend the keynote event for APA Heritage Month. Given the urgency of addressing anti-Asian racism, the talk by Charles Yu is especially timely. I want to encourage you to make every effort to hear the voices of Asian intellectuals and writers, who, like Charles Yu, are addressing this issue. Attending this event shows our support for an allied MSU program, Asian Pacific American Studies.
