Early Bird Registration for APALA MidWinter Tour and Social Dinner Ends Soon

Dear APALA Members and Friends!

Early bird registration for APALA’s MidWinter tour and social dinner ends on Friday, January 17th! It’s not too late to still take advantage of the reduced rate!

On Friday, January 24th, we’ll be visiting the Asian Arts Initiative, where we’ll hear about SAADA from Samip Mallick and Philadelphia’s Asian American community (in particular, their Chinatown) from Amanda Bergson-Shilcock of the Welcoming Center for New Pennsylvanians and Mary Yee of Asian Americans United. We will be serving lunch catered from Philadelphia Chutney Company. Learn more at http://www.apalaweb.org/apala-tour-and-talk/

On Saturday, January 25th, we’ll be hosting authors Ellen Oh (The Prophecy Series, originally The Dragon King Chronicles), Soman Chainani (New York Times bestseller The School of Good and Evil) and publisher Phoebe Yeh of Crown Books for Young Readers. (Phoebe is allegedly the first Asian American woman in publishing to have her own imprint.) We’ll be meeting at Karma Restaurant & Bar at 5:30 for dinner with our guests.
