Supporting Asian, South Asian, and Pacific Islander Bookstores

Since the coronavirus outbreak began in March 2020, there have been increased attacks on Asian, South Asian, and Pacific Islander communities. Many attacks have resulted in death or life-altering injuries.

 

Star Bright Books believes it is vital to support communities in times of distress. We stand with the Asian, South Asian, and Pacific Islander communities in the US. Here is a link to find out ways to support these communities, in whatever way you can contribute.

 

May is Asian, South Asian, and Pacific Islander Heritage Month! One way to honor these communities is by supporting local businesses. Below is a list of US bookstores and publishers to support. Click on the name of each bookstore to visit its website!
