Tell Us About Your Favorite Books By Filipino-American Authors!

The library is open for Filipino American History Month!

Hi everybody! First of all, it's Filipino American History Month! HOT DAMN.*

(*Get it? "Hot damn" bc Bruno Mars sings that and he's Fil-Am? Great, wanted to make sure.)

To celebrate, we'd love it if you told us at BuzzFeed Philippines about your favorite books by Filipino-American authors!

Or perhaps Aimee Nezhukumatathil's transnational poetics in her poetry collection Lucky Fish takes your breath away every time you read it?
