Asian Heritage Month: The reading list


Throughout May, CBC Books has been highlighting great works of Asian-Canadian literature as part of Asian Heritage Month. CBC producer and Asian-Canadian history enthusiast Adrian Ma discussed some novels he found to be influential and inspirational.

adrian-headshot-70.jpgWell, May has drawn to an end and so has Asian Heritage Month. I've had a wonderful time writing this weekly column about exploring Asian-Canadian literature and, believe me, there have been truckloads of great stories to go through. The more I read, the more I learned, but the more I also realized how much else is out there. I look forward to discovering even more inspiring and through-provoking novels by Asian-Canadian writers. In the meantime, here are 10 books (some of them suggested by you!) that I personally feel anyone who's interested in Asian-Canadian history should absolutely read when they get the chance. Thanks!
