Maine Public Radio talk and performance by the Slants

Dear CAFAM members,

In May, CAFAM sponsored a performance by Asian-American dance-rock band The Slants, led by Simon Tam, at the Space Gallery in Portland. The band is known not only for their music, but for winning the right to keep the name of their band in a legal case that went all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court.

Maine Public Radio will air the talk and performance: “Slanted: How an Asian American Film Troublemaker took on the Supreme Court,” on Sunday evening July 21st at 7pm.

Dear CAFAM members,

This month, July 17th, from 12pm-1pm, the Mandarin roundtable will be held at The Language Exchange, 75 Market Street, Suite 305 (3rd floor) in downtown Portland.

These roundtables are open to all interested — members and non-members of CAFAM, students and non-students of The Language Exchange — and to all levels of Mandarin Chinese.

Come and partake in fun and informal conversations in Mandarin and get to know a community of like-minded people. Feel free to bring your lunch.
