Every year the Prairie State College Library selects one book as part of its “One Book” community-wide program to promote literacy and discussion. As you have probably heard, this year’s One Book is “American Born Chinese” by Gene Yang, a graphical novel focusing on three seemingly unrelated, yet interrelated stories dealing with Chinese American identity and American culture.
In preparation for the community’s program on this book, the Prairie State College Library is highlighting some interesting books available on display that relate to the theme of this book. On this display, you will find books on the history of the Chinese Americans, popular Chinese tales, among other topics. You can find books on all these topics, including those listed below, on the “OneBook” display located next to the Library Classroom.
