The Making of Asian America: Missed Education Book Club JAN 15th

Missed Education Book Club: Reading The Making of Asian America By Erika Lee

Our Missed Education book club is all about sifting through the fragments of history deemed worthy to be taught in required history classes & rediscovering a history that was missed (intentionally) & skewed, but was always there, the history of the systemically marginalized.

We read one book each month and are now meeting in person again to discuss it!

 

This month we are reading The Making of Asian America By Erika Lee:

A “comprehensive…fascinating” (The New York Times Book Review) history of Asian Americans and their role in American life, by one of the nation’s preeminent scholars on the subject, with a new afterword about the recent hate crimes against Asian Americans.

In the past fifty years, Asian Americans have helped change the face of America and are now the fastest growing group in the United States. But much of their long history has been forgotten. “In her sweeping, powerful new book, Erika Lee considers the rich, complicated, and sometimes invisible histories of Asians in the United States” (Huffington Post).

We will meet at Palabras on Saturday January 16thth at 12p in our back patio area. There’s coffee from Hakiri Coffee and Pastries Cuentos Café. Masks are not required outside, but you can wear them, just depending on your comfort level.
