Join local author Darshana Khiani at Books Inc Campbell for a storytime to share her wonderful book How to Wear a Sari


Sparkling with voice and charm, this picture book about a fashionable kid out to prove she's not as small as everyone thinks, is perfect for kids eager to grow up, and for those who love to play dress-up.

Being a little kid isn't always fun and games. Sometimes, it's downright annoying.

When a little girl tires of being treated like she's TOO little, she sets out to prove to her family that she can do ANYTHING she puts her mind to . . . including putting on a colorful, twinkly, silky sari. Sure, they're long and unwieldy--but that only means her family will be even more impressed when she puts it on all by herself!

Naturally, there are some hiccups along the way, but she discovers that she's not the only one in her family who has set out with something to prove, with hilariously chaotic results. That's what photo albums are for!

 

 

"Simple, multi-patterned line art drawings in a lively color palette by Lew-Vriethoff pilot young readers through Khiani's winning guide to sari-wearing...an enjoyable behind-the-scenes look at a South Asian staple." - Publishers Weekly 

"A delightful picture book about dressing--and acting--like a grown-up before your time" - Kirkus 

 

Darshana Khiani is a second-generation Indian American who grew up in rural Pennsylvania and now resides in the San Francisco Bay Area with her family. Her skills include writing picture books, debugging network routers, and solving jigsaw puzzles. However, wearing a sari is not one of them. HOW TO WEAR A SARI is her debut picture book.

One of Books Inc.’s favorite aspects of being booksellers is getting the chance to welcome and host hundreds of authors a year, from house-hold names to local, debut authors and we are so excited to begin reintroducing the Bay Area with “The Experience You Can’t Download” in our stores with traditional author talks and booksignings. In addition to meet-and-greet author events and standard author talks, we are also continuting virtual author events.

Sales equate success, and as with in-store events, booksales made from an independent bookstore benefit the author, publisher, and lead to future event bookings. Please help us keep the Bay Area the wonderful literary hub that it is by supporting your local Books Inc.
