We are proud to have so many distinguished panelists and speakers at #YAAR14.  This page provides links to a selection of their work.

We invite you to take time before our Reunion to read Susan Choi's The Foreign Student, which won the Asian American Literary Award for fiction, and then join Susan and fellow alumni at The Big Blue Read to ask questions, offer comments and share thoughts.
