Andrew Fukuda Awarded 2020-2021 Asian/Pacific American Award for Literature in Youth Literature


‚ÄčThe Asian/Pacific American Librarians Association recently announced the recipients of the 2020 - 2021 Asian/Pacific American Awards for Literature which highlight and honor the “individual works of Asian/Pacific American experiences (either historical or contemporary) or Asian/Pacific American cultures by Asian/Pacific Islander American authors and illustrators.” This year, we are proud to announce that Andrew Fukuda, author of This Light Between Us: A Novel of World War II, is the winner of the Youth Literature Category!

This touching historical fiction follows the unlikely friendship that flourishes between a Japanese American boy and a French Jewish girl as they seek hope in the midst of war. The letters they send take them away from their respective desolation and allow them to dream of their future friendship.
