Awesome Asian Americans Book Talk and Drawing Demonstration


CAM paired up with the Friends of the Chinatown Library to present a family-friendly program on February 16, 2021.

Join co-authors, Oliver Chin and Phil Amara, and illustrator Juan Calle, as they present their latest collaboration, “Awesome Asian Americans,” which spotlights 20 trailblazing Asian American individuals. The two authors shared their inspiration behind the children’s book and read some of their favorite excerpts. The program includes a special live drawing demonstration of the vibrant, graphic novel style illustrations by Calle.

“Awesome Asian Americans: 20 Stars Who Made America Amazing” offers short biographies and unique artistic depictions of individuals whose remarkable contributions helped shape America including some of CAM’s past Historymaker Honorees such as Tyrus Wong, Helen Zia, and Judge Dolly Gee.
