Community Roundtable: Asian and Asian American Authors

September 2, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Connect with CHSA community members to discuss pressing topics during the shelter-in-place. Our goal is to keep the community united during the time apart through our online, roundtable discussion on the shelter-in-place. We will be hosting online roundtables every-other-week with different topics to engage the community.

Please note: this is an interactive event. We encourage everyone to check that their microphones and cameras are working so that they can engage in the discussion.

For our next discussion, we will want to talk about books about Asian and Asian American authors! What books have you read? Would you recommend them the CHSA community? Here’s a list of books that CHSA Staff, Interns, and Volunteers have been reading:
