Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) Heritage Month

Asian American and Pacific Islander heritage month

This May, we are proud to spotlight the richness, beauty and diversity of Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) cultures with many virtual experiences for youth and adults.

Check out our curated booklists to help inspire and invigorate activism in a myriad of ways, and our program offerings.

Our May On the Same Page book club pick is A River of Stars by Vanessa Hua, a novel about motherhood, immigration and identity.

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

“The most important part of writing and art is grace... Turning a negative into a positive. Yes, it’s a horrible feeling, but there are things we can do that push us toward beauty and demonstrate what’s possible. There’s still an opening there. Those things don’t die.”

People’s Poet, Tony Robles
