How Asian Americans Transformed Pop Culture: A Conversation with New York Times bestselling author Jeff Yang (“Rise”, “The Golden Screen”)

Celebrating Global Asian & Pacific Islander Identities

New York Times bestselling author Jeff Yang has been observing, exploring, and writing about the Asian American community for over thirty years. He launched one of the first Asian American national magazines, A. Magazine, in the late '90s and early 2000s, and now writes frequently forCNN, Quartz, Slate and elsewhere. We are thrilled to chat with Jeff about his hit book “Rise: A Pop History of Asian America from the Nineties to Now” and his upcoming book “The Golden Screen: The Movies that Made Asian America” which features a forward by Oscar winner Michelle Yeoh and an afterwards by “Crazy Rich Asians” director Jon M. Chu.
