April 2021 AAPI Dem Club Book of the Month

Dear Community Members and Allies, we are proud to announce the AAPI Dems “Books of the Month.” This “Book Club” project is to uplift AAPI voices in literature, both at the Adult and Children’s literature levels. Each month we will announce our choices for the month. For April, we have chosen “Minor Feelings, An Asian American Reckoning” by Cathy Park Hong and “One Afternoon” by Yumi Heo. We are proud to start this initiative and should you have any suggestions, please email us at aapidemclub@gmail.com.
