Growing up mixed race can be confusing at times. Thank goodness there are other Hapas out there writing about their experiences. Chances are you will relate to the amazing authors and their books that we have dug up. Here is a reading list we have collected so far. Do you know any other books about mixed race heritage or mixed art culture? Add them to the comment area and we'll add them to our growing list. Can't find one you like? Then it sounds like YOU need to write a book !
This year we are pleased to host two events that feature Hapa authors:
Lawrence Hill (Book of Negroes) with his new book "The Illegal" and
Sharon Chang (Raising Mixed Race) will be conducting a parenting workshop.
Check out these events and bring your book club too !
Have you checked out the trailer for Lawrence Hill's new book, The Illegal?
The Illegal releases Sept 8, and Lawrence Hill speaks at Hapa-palooza Festival on Sept 17. For the earlybirds out there, please enjoy a discount on our event, 'The Book of Negroes: From Page to Screen with Lawrence Hill,' where The Illegal will also be on sale.
