Episode 24: Thinking about disability, and the art of Wabi Sabi
Grace and Alvina catch up on each other's lives--Alvina mentioned the Fourth of July weekend and having a BBQ, Grace talks about seeing the Simmons University gallery show opening for Make Way for Dumplings: 20 years of the art of Grace Lin. They mention co-hosting the Simmons University Insitute where they were going to record a live episode of Book Friends Forever!
Books mentioned: Little & Lion by Brandy Colbert; Wabi Sabi by Mark Reibstein, illustrated by Ed Young; Confetti Girl by Diana Lopez; A Big Bed for Little Snow by Grace Lin: preorder from Porter Square Books: for the preorder gift--a ruler to measure the snow!
They end as always with what they're grateful for. Alvina is grateful for her home. Grace is grateful for being able to run again, and is also grateful for the trailer for Mulan- how great the movie looks and how glad she is writing an original prequel novel for it (look for it in Feb 2020)!
