Celebrating AAPI Month: Graphic Novels Spotlight

AAPI Graphic Novel Banner

May is Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) Heritage Month, a time to celebrate the kaleidoscope of cultures, traditions, and contributions woven by AAPI individuals across the United States. What’s a better way to explore and honor this heritage than to immerse yourself in the world of graphic novels and literature. We’ve highlighted some fantastic works by AAPI authors that offer a range of stories, from historical fiction to contemporary tales, that showcase the diverse experiences within the AAPI community.   

This AAPI Heritage Month, we encourage you to pick up one of these graphic novels and see what stories they have to offer. Celebrate the voices and experiences of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders, both in comics and in your communities. Drop by your local SJPL library branch to see if they have an AAPI book display and borrow the graphic novels that interest you! Happy reading!🌸
