Dialogue: Phenomenally AANHPI Books and Resources for Youth

Wednesday, 5/25/2022
3:00 - 4:00

San Francisco Public Library and New York Public Library youth librarians team up to talk about Asian-American, Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander representation in children's and young adult literature. Join BIPOC librarians Jen Woo (SFPL), Ileana Pulu (SFPL) and more Crystal Chen (NYPL), for a virtual conversation about favorite titles, authors, illustrators and more. Chen and Woo offer insight into their recent service on the Asian/Pacific American Librarians Association (APALA) Youth Award and share booklists, online resources and personal favorites.

Watch on Youtube.

The Asian/Pacific American Award for Literature, established in 2005, is to honor and recognize individual work about Asian/Pacific Americans and their heritage, based on literary and artistic merit.


Celebrate and honor the diverse histories and cultures from Asian American, Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander communities.

Discover new titles, share inspiring works and participate in challenges and contests. 


This program is sponsored by Friends of the San Francisco Public Library.
