I’m excited to share that I’ve partnered with one of my favorite local bookshops, Bel and Bunna, to exclusively offer signed copies and a free gift for pre-orders of my next picture book, Binny’s Diwali, written by Thrity Umrigar. All pre-orders will receive a signed copy and one 8×10 print (you cannot request specific prints). BUT if you pre-order 2 copies, you will receive each print (pictured below).
It’s a strange time to release a book, to say the least. When I was working on the illustrations for Binny’s Diwali, I had a note to myself that read “make this the best Diwali book ever!” It’s no secret that it’s my favorite holiday. I love Binny’s Diwali for many reasons – namely that it invites all readers, whether familiar or unfamiliar with the holiday, into the life of Binny and a celebration she wants to share. Diwali centers around banishing darkness and ushering in light, which is definitely needed this year.
I completely understand if buying books isn’t possible right now. But if you can share or boost in any way, I’m grateful. I’m offering the prints as an extra gift because I know we could all use some Diwali light.
Binny’s Diwali releases on September 1st.
