About Us

Elevating and Celebrating the

Asian American Author Community

In today’s political and social climate too often we focus on differences versus what commonly bind us together. In a world where we are more global than local, creating bridges through discussion and dialogue is growing ever more important.

 

We began with a mission to create greater cultural understanding and empathy to support the Asian-American and Pacific Islander community. We believe that information and insights can counter bias and bigotry. We believe that having a real impact means reaching out far and wide and not being narrow and deep. 

 

We started as a group of passionate authors, entrepreneurs and activists that wanted to create real change because creating a more inclusive world takes work.

 

Our goal is to elevate and celebrate the stories of compelling Asian authors so that others can better understand our identity and culture. We'll share a diverse range of literature from fiction to non-fiction so people of all ages can better understand who we are and what we're really about.  

 

We want you to be a part of our movement too. When you join us, you'll gain access to various events and more importantly, to a community of people who are just as passionate as you are.
