In collaboration with the Foundation for Children's Books (FCB), 826 Boston connects partner classrooms with dynamic authors to connect with student writers and share tips about craft.
Award-winning young adult fiction writer Mitali Perkins
visited 826 partner school Boston International as part of our "Meet The Author" series. Mitali engaged a room full of 11th graders, all of whom have immigrated to the U.S. within the last five years, with tales of her childhood in India as well as her experiences assimilating to American culture.
In response to her warm and energetic presentation, one student asked, "Does she do this for love or for money?"
Thank you, Mitali Perkins and Jen Cusack of FCB, for an inspiring author visit! Click here to learn more about Mitali and her books.
