Interim Report

The Southwest Chapter is going to host a program for the Texas Library Association (TLA) Annual Conference in Houston in April 2009.  Our program title is Collections on the Lives and Histories of Asian Americans and will be featured by two guest speakers, Icy Smith and Irwin Tang.  Both speakers are dedicated and well-known authors and publishers of Asian American collections

We had our semi-annual gathering on December 6, 2008.  It was luncheon at a local restaurant where we welcomed a couple of Chinese Librarians who are new to Houston, one of whom attended our gathering.  Ten chapter members attended the event, some bringing family members along.

We will have our next gathering around March of this year.
