AAPI Books from the past 5 years (2017-2022)
The list below compiles various fiction and non-fiction books written by AAPI or Asian authors and published in the past five years. It is by no means intended to be an exhaustive listing of all AAPI books from 2017 to the present, but includes a handful of recommended or highly anticipated recent books published by AAPI authors. APABA-DC member Erica Lai prepared the list and book descriptions. Hope this list helps you find a new AAPI book to savor and enjoy!
