South Asia Book Award for Children’s and Young Adult
Meet the Winners Discussion Series
Join us to celebrate the 2020 South Asia Book Award winners!
Through a series of virtual discussions, we will get to know these authors,
their award-winning titles, and how these books can be used to learn about and
teach about South Asia in our schools, libraries, and homes.
This discussion features Meenal Patel, who won the 2020 SABA
Book Award for her picture book Priya Dreams of Marigolds and Masala
(Beaver’s Pond Press, 2019). This book explores our connections with people and
places. Priya asks her beloved Babi Ba, “What is India like?” as they stand
side-by-side preparing the evening meal. Babi Ba tells Priya of her India – the
sights, sounds, and smells. And, Priya, in return, discovers how to bring India
to her Babi Ba.
Meenal Patel is an illustrator, children’s book author, and color-lover.
