Seattle Globalist: Asian American Mobile Book Collection Unveiled

posted by Randall

API Flying Book ShelfThey say books are food for the mind. Well, if food trucks are all the rage, why not a mobile bookstore?

The Seattle Globalist reports a new traveling book collection of Asian American books has made its debut in Seattle.

The API Flying Book Shelf came about after Sabrina Chen discovered a book store in San Mateo and discovered the Asian American Curriculum Project.

She knew right away that she wanted something similar in Seattle.

“I’ve never been in a bookstore where it was primarily APIA authors, writers, artists just everywhere,” she said. “Go to Barnes & Noble, and it’s their Asian section which is very culturally based.”

The book store is set up for one month in Seattle’s International District. No word on where its going next.

But wouldn’t it be nice if someone donated a book mobile and really made this collection mobile.
