Since October 2020, Chatham Square Library has hosted a virtual program, “Talking Books: Asian American Authors in Conversation.” This monthly series features the latest works by living writers of fiction and nonfiction in an hour-long discussion with a member of our library staff. During these discussions, we asked them what they are currently reading, intend to read, or books they recommend. Their answers are shown below along with links to the books in the NYPL catalog.
If you missed it, also see Asian American Authors in Conversation: The Books That First Made Me Feel Represented.
