"They were out there all around us: a startling array of offbeat, outspoken, and idealistic Asian American artists, activists, entrepreneurs, and organizers who converged [in] New York City in the '90s—most of them, like us, a double "second generation," the children of immigrants and students of the first wave of Asian American Studies.... This collection is a relief map of unexplored history. But it is also a first draft of the future." - Jeff Yang from foreword of Local/Express: Asian American Arts and Culture 90s NYC.

Come celebrate the release of a new anthology by The Asian American Literary Review that captures some of the voices, reflections, and energy of Asian American NYC in the 90s with artists active then and now!
