AAPI ( Asian American and Pacific Islander) Westport Presents: Karina Yan Glaser

May 13, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm EDT

In celebration of Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month, AAPI Westport and The Westport Library are proud to welcome New York Times bestselling author of The Vanderbeekers! and A Duet for Home, Karina Yan Glaser.


In this all ages event, Karina will present "What Do You Need to be a Writer?" and talk about her experience as an Asian American author and how that has influenced her work. A book signing will follow.

Originally from California, Karina came to New York City for college and has stuck around for over 20 years. She has had a varied career teaching and implementing literacy programs in family homeless shelters and recruiting healthcare professionals to volunteer in under resourced areas around the world. Now, as a mother, one of her proudest achievements is raising two kids who can’t go anywhere without a book. She lives in Harlem with her husband, two teenagers, one dog, and three cats. 

Karina is a contributing editor at Book Riot, the largest independent book media company in North America, where she writes the weekly The Kids Are All Right newsletter.
