Celebrating Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month

May is Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month. In a continued effort to eradicate racism and hate, we wanted to highlight and celebrate the many cultures, contributions, and perspectives from the Asian American and Pacific Islander community. Now more than ever we want to showcase the diversity in our communities and throughout the library system.We kick off this month's episode with John and Jason from Parker Williams as they give us the lowdown on Anime for beginners. In our Are You Are Afraid of the Stacks segment, we will explore two horror books in Children's literature written by Asian authors. Discuss their themes, and why we recommend them.  After living in Hawaii for 3 years, Jennifer from the Spring Branch Memorial Branch Library developed a love and appreciation for Hula. She joins us this month for a special interview with Nani Kamali’i-Chang of Ka Pa Hula Na Pua o Kamali'i – Houston. Books in our book recommendations:Simeon, Sheldon.
