It’s Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month, and we want to celebrate the AAPI authors you know and love! Unfortunately, the pandemic has brought with it an increase in anti-Asian racism and violence. We’ve talked about some of the best kids’ books to combat COVID-19-inspired racism as well as adult nonfiction about anti-Asian racism and how to fight it, but we also want to shine a spotlight on the amazing AAPI authors whose books you recommend.
Here are the AAPI authors you think everyone should know! Whether they write fiction, nonfiction, comics, kids’ books, or any other genre, we’re celebrating the diversity within the AAPI community with these reads. You let us know on Facebook and Twitter your favorites, and here are your answers. Get ready to see your TBR multiply!
