Notable Asian American Pacific Islander Writers #AsianPacificAmericanHeritageMonth #APAHM #AAPIHM
There are so many incredible writers on this list from the Grammarly Blog. The post is by no means comprehensive, and we can already think of a few writers whose work we admire that weren’t included (T Kira Mahealani Madden, author of Long Live the Tribe of Fatherless Girls, Michelle Zauner, author of Crying in H Mart: A Memoir and member of the band Japanese Breakfast, we could go on and on.) Definitely check out the recs – you can’t go wrong here!
Asian American Pacific Islander authors have created an exhilarating modern literary canon, penning literature at once wholly American and proudly representative of their many strands of heritage. These novels, poems, essays, articles, memoirs, and nonfiction books are part of a pan-Asian and Pacific Islander literary movement, while also being representative of authors’ individual experiences as writers and members of their respective communities.
These authors have expanded the scope of Asian American literature through their writing. Learn about their work below, from a lighthearted young adult series to a Pulitzer Prize–winning espionage tale set in South Vietnam to a children’s book about struggling to belong to a satirical novel about being cast as the “Generic Asian Man” in Hollywood.
