Enjoy drinks and food, meet Kundiman fellows, and celebrate the work of Asian American literary pioneers. The theme this year is "In the Mood for Love," a reference to the classic Wong Kar-Wai film, and we invite you to be creative with your attire.

Your support is important to us as we continue to illuminate the many voices of our community and nurture the talent to come.
