Penguin Classics is releasing four new editions of canonical novels by Asian American authors, with new forewords.

But there’s plenty more to read during Asian/Pacific American Heritage Month beyond classic works!

BookRiot has a multigenre roundup for all ages.

The New York Public Library has a list of one magazine editor’s favorite contemporary Asian American lit.

And NBC News created a list of new fiction and nonfiction that fits this month’s theme.

To cap things off, Bustle asked thirteen Asian American and Pacific Islander authors to share the books in which they saw themselves for the first time.

Feel free to add your recommendations in the comments — we're currently reading and enjoying Pachinko, mentioned in the Bustle piece.
