APA Compass: Ishmael Beah, Malinda Lo, Lyndee Mah
On the next APA Compass:
Ishmael Beah tells us his amazing story: of being a child solider in Sierra Leone and the transition to his second life in the United States. Beah is the author of the novel "The Radiance of Tomorrow".
Malinda Lo started writing because she just wanted to be the hero of her own story. She's now the author of four acclaimed young adult novels, including the science fiction thriller "Inheritance".
Portland vocalist, Lyndee Mah, sheds light on the complexities of being Chinese-Welsh-American and brings this to the stage in her performance memoir, "E-Bon E-Bon"
APA Compass promotes social justice, features APA arts and culture, and challenges how APAs are represented in the media.
