The annual Asian Heritage Street Celebration in San Francisco takes place on Saturday, May 15th near the Main Branch of the San Francisco Public Library. Last year, in honor of the annual observerance, we highlighted a selection of our Asian Pacific American titles from the Magazines & Newspapers Center. This year, we would like to introduce you to Koreana, a quarterly magazine focusing on Korean art and culture.

Koreana covers Korean traditional and contemporary arts. Sample content includes feature articles on cultural issues and artistic trends, literary, music, and dance reviews, cuisine and arts of living, interviews with Korean artists and architects, and more.

And if you happen to drop by the Main Library, be sure to check out comic strips that examine the "changing social realities of Korean society from the 1950s through the 1990s" in an exhibit entitled "Korean Comics: A Society through Small Frames" which currently runs till June 13.
