The Newcomb Institute's Asian Pacific American Reading Group (APARG) is a space for students, staff, faculty, and allies to discover and discuss contemporary literature by APA authors and creators. The group strives to create meaningful dialogue that encourages inclusivity, awareness, and the uplifting of lived experiences.
The Reading Group focuses on the exchange of ideas and the opportunity to explore new literature and highlight APA authors. We hope to curate and provide an ongoing, evolving list of suggested written works (memoirs, novels, short stories, poetry) that you as the reader can choose from. The discussion meetings will provide a reflective environment to explore common cultural and literary themes.
We are excited to announce our first book Min Jin Lee's Pachinko.
