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?

April is National Poetry Month! This 25th annual celebration of poets and poetry was launched by the Academy of American Poets in April 1996 to remind us that poets have an integral role to play in our culture. And what better time than Spring to promote artists and an art form that’s given us so much beauty? Whether you’re looking for a new poet, revisiting old favorites, or composing your own haiku, freeform poem, rhyme, or blank verse: the Library’s collection is a great place to enhance your own life with this literary art form.
