Book Hunters in Brief #124: Celebrate Asian Pacific American Heritage Month

In May, Book Hunters and Harris County Public Library are celebrating the contributions to our nation by Americans of Asian and Pacific Islander descent. As you know, that name covers a lot of ground--not just geographically, but culturally as well. Book Hunters celebrates that diversity in its young adult reading suggestions, and HCPL branches celebrate it with a wide variety of programs from Hawaiian luaus to a Japanese sword demonstration and points in between.

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.
