Representation matters. The release of Crazy Rich Asians marks a long overdue milestone for Asian representation in popular culture. For this week’s #wokewednesday we look at some other books either by Asian authors, featuring Asian characters, or both. These are stories that are extremely powerful and moving and deserve to be read and heard. (There are also so many more authors and books so please let us know your favorites.) #representationmatters #staywoke #readmorediversebooks #readdiversebooks #asianrepresentationmatters #bookstagram #crazyrichasians #booksmakeyoubetter

Guys! Did you know it’s the birthday of our fearless leader? Well... it is! WORD is a true reflection of the bad ass that is @conorati - you’ll find us slinging some of her favorite books, visiting with wonderful authors, and rocking karaoke because we’re inspired to create the kind of indie book community she’s long champion. Keep kicking ass boss and have a happy birthday!
