The AAPI Reading List

In uncertain times, we have always found wisdom in books and courage from our authors. The hate crimes against the Asian American and Pacific Islander community are appalling and deeply troubling. The fight against racism will take all of us, and one way to begin is by sharing AAPI stories, culture, food, experiences, and voices. As we work together to build an antiracist and equitable future, we hope the books on this page can teach, inspire, and strengthen. This list is not exhaustive, but it’s a place to start.
