Asian American, Native Hawaiian, & Pacific Islander Heritage Month

Asian American, Native Hawaiian, & Pacific Islander Heritage Month

Celebrate Asian American, Native Hawaiian, & Pacific Islander Heritage Month with this selection of Booksmith favorites! Asian-, Native-Hawaiian-, and Pacific-Islander-American history and literature are American history and literature. AANHPI Heritage Month is an opportunity to learn about this essential part of our collective past and present. The month recognizes the cultural and historical contributions of AANHPI people, here in the US and across the globe. AANHPI Month is challenging; it seeks gather together under a single umbrella a complex array of cultures and histories, each with complicated relationships to life in the United States, within themselves, and with each other. The titles in this collection were chosen by our booksellers as a small sampling of remarkable work from this massive array of cultural heritages, a place to envision the breadth of what the umbrella of AANHPI encompasses and explore a few of the precious stories contained within it.
