A/P/A Reads: Poetry by William Nuʻutupu Giles


For its December meeting, A/P/A Reads will discuss the spoken word poetry of William Nuʻutupu Giles, an afakasi Samoan writer and arts educator from Honolulu, Hawaiʻi. Giles’s poems dig for the political seeds in personal stories. Their work connects contemporary poetry with the oral traditions of Polynesian genealogy and crosses oceans of immigrant identity, colonization, representation, and masculinity. Attendees are encouraged to listen to selections of Giles’s poetry before the meeting.


Launched in Fall 2020, A/P/A Reads is a student-run book club for NYU students with an interest in A/P/A writing and literature. Members meet monthly to discuss selected works, and engage in meaningful dialogue together. The club is sponsored by the Asian/Pacific/American Institute at NYU.


Accessibility note: This event will be hosted virtually on Zoom. A Zoom account, internet access, and a smartphone or computer is required. If you have any access needs, please email apa.rsvp@nyu.edu as soon as possible.
