Toronto Public Library and KING KWONG!

 A keen-eyed fan of the late great hockey hero Larry Kwong noticed this news from Toronto Public Library, celebrating Asian Heritage Month 2021: Historic Asian Canadians. Here's a link to their article. Among the people profiled in this list was Larry Kwong -- and the image chosen to show his likeness is the cover of KING KWONG!

This popular biography by Paula Johanson has a long and detailed title: King Kwong: Larry Kwong, the China Clipper who broke the NHL colour barrier. 


Originally published by Five Rivers Publishing, the new edition is released by Doublejoy Books with a new afterword by Chad Soon. It's available now through online retailers from our distributor at
