#AAPIHeritageMonth

May is apparently Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month. I’ve been showcasing some AAPI creators over in my author Instagram account. And for this blog post, I want to share an interesting book I read recently.

While interesting, it’s heavy on the entertainment side. I don’t think I saw anything about scientists, sadly.

But it’s written with tons of humor and in a variety of styles…infographics, interviews, etc.

This spread of a “typical” asian home is hilarious. If you can’t see item number 1, it says “Shoes removed by the door, because we’re not barbarians.” And that’s pretty much us in a nutshell. LOL!

I want to share one more spread because it’s an interview of 2 of my favorite asian comics creators, Greg Pak and Gene Luen Yang. As a fan of comic books, I’d like to see more Asian representation there.

If you like to learn about all the super talented AAPI thespians, athletes, and others in the arts arena, then this book is for you! Me, I like to learn more about scientists and doctors. Maybe they’ll do a book focused on that segment of the population next.

Happy weekend!
