"Asian American & Pacific Islander Heritage"
Wednesday, April 2, 2014, Public Library Main Branch, 12 noon - 1 PM

May is Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month. Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders (AAPI) are one of the fastest growing groups of immigrants in America yet possibly the most misunderstood. People from Asia have had an important role in the development of this country (e.g., U.S. Secretary of Energy - Dr. Steven Chu; U.S. Former Secretary of Labor - Elaine Chao; and others such as Apolo Ohno, Jeremy Lin, Michelle Kwan, etc.). What are some of the contributions Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders have made to the culture in America?
