We're very, very happy to announce that Nidhi Chanani will be here on Sunday, December 17, 2017 at 11AM to sign her fantastic new, all-ages graphic novel PASHMINA. Our Graphic Novel of the Month Kids Club pick for December, PASHMINA is a magical coming of age tale that beautifully illustrates what it's like to juggle two cultures. As always, our Kids Club meeting is open only to members and will take place at 10AM, BEFORE the signing. If you'd like to learn more about the Kids Club, please visit graphicnovelclub.com.

About PASHMINA: Priyanka Das has so many unanswered questions: Why did her mother abandon her home in India years ago? What was it like there? And most importantly, who is her father, and why did her mom leave him behind? But Pri’s mom avoids these questions―the topic of India is permanently closed.

For Pri, her mother's homeland can only exist in her imagination. That is, until she find a mysterious pashmina tucked away in a forgotten suitcase. When she wraps herself in it, she is transported to a place more vivid and colorful than any guidebook or Bollywood film. But is this the real India? And what is that shadow lurking in the background? To learn the truth, Pri must travel farther than she’s ever dared and find the family she never knew.

In this heartwarming graphic novel debut, Nidhi Chanani weaves a tale about the hardship and self-discovery that is born from juggling two cultures and two worlds.
