Asian/Pacific American Bookmark
Celebrate Asian/Pacific American Heritage
May is Asian/Pacific American Heritage Month. Celebrate the contributions of Asian/Pacific American authors and illustrators in your library with this bookmark featuring art by Gene Luen Yang. Mr. Yang received the 2007 Printz Award for his graphic novel American Born Chinese, which interweaves the legend of the Monkey King with the story of Jin Wang, a young Chinese immigrant who struggles with assimilation into American culture. This orginal bookmark features the legendary Monkey King and encourages readers to explore Asian/Pacific American heritage. Special thanks to Gene Yang, First Second Books, the Asian/Pacific American Librarians Association, and the Chinese American Librarians Association.
