Arab American Heritage Month

Teens, Coming-of-Age, and Arab-American Heritage

Arab American Heritage Month

Arab-American Heritage Month honors the rich culture and contributions of those Americans who trace their lineage to one or more of the 22 Arabic-speaking countries found throughout North Africa and Southwest Asia. The theme of this year’s celebration is “Mosaic.” Like all of us, each and every piece of a mosaic is unique. The books in this list are about finding your place in the larger world - as a young adult and Arab-American. Will you find a piece of yourself in their stories?
