Red Rectangle on lefthand side with text that reads "Celebrating Culture: A A P I Heritage Month Book Discussion. Saturday, May 13 at 3PM" Next to the text is an image of two teens in a library holding books.
Celebrate Asian-American Pacific Islander Heritage Month at the DFPL in our Celebrating Culture Community Discussion. Bring your favorite books or share your favorite media written and created by AAPI Authors and voices in a discussion facilitated by Assistant Programming Librarian Justice McCray.
When you’re sharing, here are a few prompts to consider to help guide the discussion:
  • What culture(s) were represented in this story?
  • How do my experiences relate to the character(s) in this story? How do they differ?
  • Do you feel as though this story/media has made a cultural impact?
  • What has been your relationship with representation in media? Has it changed over time?
  • If you’re sharing a cookbook, which recipes were your favorite? Did the stories between the recipes impact your relationship with the food?
These prompts are suggestions. Feel free to share anything that resonated with you.
