Check out my latest happenings ~ news, reviews, events etc!

~ I introduced an awesome webinar on Read the World: Picture Books and Translation, an exhibit at The Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art, the third seminar in a series coorganized by Outside In World, the organization that I advise, and the Centre for Book Cultures and Publishing (CBCP) at the University of Reading, England. I introduced the previous webinars in this series on translated literature and translation education for children. You can view all on the CBCP’s YouTube page and stay tuned for announcements about our next webinars in autumn 2022!

~ I virtually visited the class at Amherst College that curated the Read the World exhibit at The Eric Carle Museum, to share my ideas. It was wonderful to meet the group and to support a new generation of translated literature advocates! If you would like to book me to visit your class, please contact me.

~ The culmination of a two-year wisdom work advising project, the Outside In World Collection of Children’s Books in Translation was acquired by the University of Portsmouth, England. Please read about it on the OIW site here, the UoP Library site here, and on the wonderful WorldKidLit site here. We’re organizing a series of academic and community events around the OIW Collection at UoP, so again, stay tuned!

~ I am co-supervising a brilliant PhD student in translation studies at the University of Reading, England, as part of OIW’s partnership with the university, which is also covered in this news notice.

~ Gratitude and Emotions, my two latest books with illustrator Manuela G Montoya, are being read and loved by many children (and adults) in English and 17 bilingual editions, so join in the joy! You can order these and all the books in the series on the Milet Publishing website or wherever you buy books, or borrow them from your library!

~  My book Love received a lovely review on the Arabic with Nichole Instagram @arabnicles: “There’s a great variety of things to consider as love…a beautiful display of our true diversity…” And Nichole interviewed me about my Arabic learning journey on her website!
