May is Asian American & Pacific Islander Heritage Month!
With instances of anti-Asian violence on the rise, it’s more important than ever to stand in solidarity and to celebrate the Asian American & Pacific Islander community, both at Lawrenceville and across the country. Since 1978, the contributions of these communities have been commemorated during the first 10 days of May- a celebration that was expanded to the entire month in 1992.
The Bunn Library has partnered with the Pan-Asian Alliance to build a list of recommended reads to celebrate this month. Bolded titles are available for checkout either on Sora with your Lawrenceville login, or in print at The Bunn Library- simply fill out this request form. Which one will you read first?
