Falcon Room (303)

Are you looking for a place to gush about your favorite Asian shows, movies, or even songs? Or maybe you’re just curious and want to explore what Asian entertainment is like? Come join us!

After a long break, we're finally back! And what better timing than during the Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month!

Normally this is where you can go all out (but spoiler-free) on your love of Squid Game, The Untamed, Marry My Husband, Wang Yibo, BTS, IU, and more! (If you have no idea what and who these people are, fret not! We can't wait to take you on a journey through the world of Asian entertainment...and sometimes even outside that!)

Not only that! In addition to all of the above, to celebrate AAPI month, we're expanding our horizon and will be talking about Asian American movies and TV shows as well!

This event is free! You don't need to have an Evanston Public Library card to sign up!

  • WHEN: Thursday, May 30th, 2024 from 5:00pm to 6:30pm
  • WHERE: Evanston Public Library (Main Library - Third Floor Falcon Room 303)

There will also be Asian snacks! Please let us know if you have any allergies and we will try to accommodate that.

We look forward to finding out what Asian (or other) entertainment you adore!

If you have any questions or need any help, feel free to contact us at (847) 448-8620 or pwongtrakul@cityofevanston.org

Note: You will receive a confirmation email after you have finished your registration, please check your spam or junk mail folder if you are unable to find it. We will also send you a reminder email on the day of the event as well.
