April 29, 2022

This Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month we are highlighting exciting, new fiction by a diverse group of women who draw upon the culture and traditions of China, India, Japan, Taiwan, and the Philippines—and of their lives in the U.S.— to tell these stories. These titles have been published in the last few months or are just about to be released.

We also invite you to explore our Asian American & Pacific Islander Heritage Reading List for many more titles reflecting a range of voices and experiences including memoirs, essays, and poetry.

Summaries provided via NYPL’s catalog, which draws from multiple sources. Click through to each book’s title for more.
