In Person Panel Discussion: Tara Dairman, Grace Lin & Christine Suggs

BookWoman Presents Tara Dairman, Grace Lin & Christine Suggs!

Please join us (in-store) to celebrate these dynamic award winning & emerging authors for a panel discussion about their work.

Grace Lin is the recipient of the Children's Literature Legacy Award and is the bestselling author and illustrator of over thirty books, including A Big Mooncake for Little Star (a Caldecott Honor), A Big Bed for Little Snow, Where the Mountain Meets the Moon (a Newbery Honor), The Year of the Dog, and the Ling & Ting series. Grace is a graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design and lives in Massachusetts.

"In her memoir, ¡Ay, Mija! (a Graphic Novel): My Bilingual Summer in Mexico, Christine Suggs explores a trip they took to Mexico to visit family, as Christine embraces and rebels against their heritage and finds a sense of belonging”-- Christine Suggs is an illustrator, designer, and comic artist. Their work explores the intersection of their identities, namely being a queer, fat, Latinx feminist who loves all things cute. They're also way too into Pokémon and cats. They're currently living in Dallas, TX with their super rad husband and insanely adorable pets.

Former Austinite Tara Dairman is the author of multiple middle-grade novels, including the All Four Stars series and The Great Hibernation, and the picture book Desert Girl, Monsoon Boy, illustrated by Archana Sreenivasan, which was named a Kirkus Reviews Best Picture Book of the Year. Tara Dairman holds a BA in creative writing from Dartmouth College, has traveled to more than 90 countries, and, after a few years of adventuring around the United States in an RV with her family, now lives in Colorado.
