We're Throwing a Party!!!

You'll enjoy the stylings of Ashok Kondabolu, the hypeman for hip hop trio Das Racist, who just might stick around for a final DJ set. Christina Xu of The Awesome Foundation & Rekha Malhotra aka DJ Rekha will tell you about their forays into the future of Asian American awesomeness. Ishle Park, aka the "Queen of Queens", that borough's first Poet Laureate, will throw down some verse.

The Margins is our flagship magazine of arts & ideas -- it’s where we’ll invent the future of Asian American intellectual culture.
Open City is our magazine that will give voice to the stories that make New York what it is -- but that are never told.
Managed by an editorial team with experience at The Atlantic Monthly, Grantland, & the New York Times, the magazines will feature exclusive video of authors Junot Díaz, Jhumpa Lahiri, Teju Cole, & Maxine Hong Kingston & new work by Thai director Apichatpong Weerasethakul, & Pulitzer Prize winner Jonathan Gold.
