Books to Celebrate AAPI Heritage Month!

Firework SparklerHappy Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month! It is that time of year where we look at all the contributions and achievements of our friends and family in the AAPI community, both past and present. In the face of the recent marked increase in violence against Asian Americans it is more important than ever to recognize the many ways that they have helped to shape our modern world for the better. With that in mind, DBRL has created a list of titles that feature AAPI characters and stories, including some graphic novels and memoirs from a variety of voices and backgrounds. You can click here to access that books list. We’d also like to bring attention to a number of other events and resources provided by the Library of Congress and related organizations, which will be hosting a number of talks and events related to notable figures and events in honor of the heritage month. You can find the website and schedule for those events at the link here, and we hope that your May is beautiful, enjoyable, and full of great books!
