(Americas Award, Children’s Africana Book Awards, Freeman Book Award, Middle
East Book Awards, and the South Asia Book Award) sponsor a 60 minute webinar on
a book recognized by one of the awards.
You Bring the Distant Near
May’s webinar is presented by the South
Asia Book Award. Please join us in learning more about the book, You Bring the
Distant Near by Mitali Perkins. Five girls. Three generations. One great American
love story. You Bring the Distant Near explores sisterhood, first loves,
friendship, and the inheritance of culture--for better or worse. Ranee, worried
that her children are losing their Indian culture; Sonia, wrapped up in a
forbidden biracial love affair; Tara, seeking the limelight to hide her true
self; Shanti, desperately trying to make peace in the family; Anna, fighting to
preserve her Bengali identity.
