SKYLIGHT TREEHOUSE and the LA PUBLIC LIBRARY PRESENT: DIVYA SRINIVASAN, author of WHAT I AM

*Join Skylight Treehouse and the LA Public Library virtually on Crowdcast for an interactive event with Divya Srinivasan, author of What I Am

RSVP here to join the livestream or watch the replay.

This is event is presented in partnership with Punk Rock Marthas!

The creator of Little Owl’s Night explores and celebrates the complexities of what makes us who we are in this comforting and thoughtful picture book.

A young narrator describes herself: a girl, a granddaughter, Indian, and American. Soon, we see the young girl as a plethora of things: selfish and generous, mean and kind, brave and mischievous. While many of these qualities oppose each other, the context and illustrations make it abundantly clear that she speaks the truth. She is a walking contradiction, and that is precisely what makes her both a unique individual and an essential piece of the greater world around her. Divya Srinivasan shows what makes us human and proud to be who we are.

Divya Srinivasan is an illustrator and animator living in Austin, Texas. She is also the author-illustrator of Little Owl’s Night and Octopus Alone.
