Mitali, I stumbled upon your jacketflap blog yesterday. Last night at the library, Rickshaw Girl was front and center on the racks, so I had to pick it up. Wonderful. I'm off to Amazon to post a review.

I've enjoyed your blog. You offer a lot of interesting presentations. I hope to listen in someday. Esp. on one about living between cultures.

Loved your presentation at Parker in Reading MA last week. It was the best author talk in years. You really got the kids involved. They often have a hard time with author all school presentations. Well done!
