The month of May marks Asian American and Pacific Islander heritage month, or AAPI month. This is a time to celebrate the contributions of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders throughout our country. For us at the Library, that means sharing some of our picks for AAPI own-voice authors and literature, both new and old.
