Hello AACP Newsletter Blog Readers.

Our June newsletter is now linked to this page. Have a look.

In this issue, we continue our June series of AAPI related travel articles. We started this series back in 2005.

I was informed by one of our readers that she had visited “Yamashiro Restaurant and Garden” because she read about it in our newsletter.

Thank you very much for this feedback – it’s great to hear.

If you’re looking for some suggestions on places to visit, check out this article and also check out our past travel pieces (see this article for links to the past article).

For our other article we feature an essay submitted to us from author Cynthia Chin-Lee on “Thoughts on Being an Asian American Woman Writer.” 


The June newsletter also features a summer book reading list. We hope to have more suggestions for you in our July and August newsletters, so stay tuned.


I just heard an interesting interview with Indian American author Tania James (writer of “Atlas of Unknowns”) about her new book “Loot.” This book is a historical fiction novel about “Tipu’s Tiger” an Indian automaton of a tiger mauling a British soldier.

You can hear this interview on the KQED Forum website – have a listen.

That’s all for now. Take care.
