Ruiyan WangThe Asian American Cultural Center recently organized its first-ever book club to familiarize Yale students with the literature and lives of Asian American authors.
In late January, the AACC opened sign-ups for the club, which they advertised as a way to engage with the works of Asian American authors.
Duong stated that the AACC book club does not meet regularly as a traditional club would.
Mao and Cathy Park Hong were the two authors the book club initially advertised, but Duong revealed that Hong’s last-minute conflicts resulted in Silvieus being the second Asian American author the club will consider.
Cam Do ’21 signed up for the book club, but she was unable to gain a spot on either list of 14.
