New Librarian-Moderated Author Series to Celebrate AAPI Voices
After a year that saw a disturbing rise in hate crimes directed at the AAPI (Asian American and Pacific Islander) community, a new collaborative online speaker series is set to celebrate AAPI books, voices, cultures, and experiences. The series, AAPI Communities in Conversation, is a joint effort between the University of South Carolina’s Augusta Baker Endowed Chair and Penguin Random House Library Marketing, with additional media support from Publishers Weekly.
The AAPI Communities in Conversation series aims to celebrate and highlight notable books by Asian American and Pacific Islander authors and creators, as well as increase the appreciation and understanding of the Asian and Pacific diasporic cultures, stories, and experiences.
