Assocation of Asian American Studies Conference Day 2

Woke up bright and early to set up the Reel Asian table. We had many comments about our beautiful posters.

Aram with Laureen Chew, a professor at San Francisco State University, was Amy in Wayne Wang 's Chan is Missing and Geraldine in Dim Sum.

The conference center is HUGE. It's possibly the biggest building I have ever been in. I just looked it up actually. And its the biggest conventional center in North America (3rd in the world!).

We realized it wasn't self evident having books on a table that we were in fact selling the book, so I had to make this temporary sign. It got some laughs and consequently, some sales!

Aram chatting with a rep from Stanford Press.

There are about 15 vendor in the book room. And I can safely say, we sell the best book on Asian Canadian film.

The first real day at AAAS has been amazing. We've met lots of people and I even managed to get in a screening of Who Killed Vincent Chin. Aram is off to see Option 3 tonight at the Asian American Showcase.
