API-Owned Bookstores to Support

This directory is regularly updated to reflect new stores. Last update: 5/9/2022


In celebration of Asian American Heritage Month and Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month, we’ve put together this directory of API-owned bookstores based in the US, Canada, and online. Check each listing for the store’s website, as well as links for following them on social media.

Looking for more? You can also browse our collection of audiobooks by AAPI authors, take a quiz to find an AAPI-authored audiobook, and use our Bookstore Finder to locate a store near you.

Stores listed with Libro.fm Storefronts below are Libro.fm partner stores, meaning that when you purchase audiobooks from their Libro.fm Storefront, it directly supports their bookstore.

Bookstores: Want to become a Libro.fm partner store? Email bookstores@libro.fm, and we’ll take care of the rest.
