Reasons to Read Nonfiction: AAPI Stories

As part of OPL's celebration of Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month, this week's Advice for Readers blog presents a selction of books showcasing the complexity and diversity of the AAPI story. In March of this year, OPL published a statement in support of the Asian and Asian/Pacific Islander American community, which provided an expansive list of both children's and adult books on the subject of Asian American experiences and history, as well as resources for Asian Americans and their allies. Below, you will find books ranging from broad compelling histories, to intimate personal memoirs and graphic novels, each revealing a different facet of the AAPI experience.
