ES Author Visit by Yangsook Choi

Mar 19, 2019 - Mar 20, 2019
YISS is pleased to host author/illustrator Yangsook Choi, who has written and illustrated many books for young readers. Her books have been acclaimed as "Best of the Best" by the Chicago Public Library, included on the American Library Association Notable Book list, selected by PBS Reading Rainbow, and have received the International Reading Association's Children's Book Award. To learn more, go to The Power of Storytelling for Parents (2:30-3:00 p.m.) Yangsook will share how she began writing and illustrating books and then talk about why storytelling is important, particularly for the children of immigrant/international/expat parents. She will cover how storytelling can be applied so that the children can learn to have patience in finding what is specifically their own and becoming even more themselves. Parents can help their children on the journey! For more information, contact the YISS Librarians at
