Book Hunters in Brief #74: Asian Pacific American Heritage Month

This week, the Book Hunters want to celebrate the contributions to American culture made by people of Asian and Pacific Islander descent. And there are plenty. Consider this: were it not for Asian Americans, this land of capitalism with a capital "C" would have no tycoons. Then, consider this: our Marines wouldn't be gung ho. And this: we would have no cousins living out in the boondocks. And finally consider this: without the contributions of Asian Americans, we wouldn't even have that most American of vegetables: ketchup.

Let's Play Games!

Did you know that our Chutes & Ladders game came from a game in India?

Join the fun with games and snacks from Japan, Vietnam, China and more as we celebrate Asian Pacific Heritage Month!
Some games you may know and some will be new!


Date: Tuesday, May 19
Time: 4:00-5:00 p.m.


For Families with children ages 5+ years.
