 Celebrate Diwali with These Wonderful Books!

These wonderful, hopeful books are sure to inspire you and your young readers! From a sweet celebration of the holiday, to a young boy finding his voice, to two siblings diving deep to save the merpeople! You won't want to miss this great live event!

Join us in-store to discover:

  • My Diwali Light by RAAKHEE MIRCHANDANI. Devi loves the Diwali season. It’s a time to wear her red bindi and eat samosas until she bursts! Make mithai and design rangoli with her Papa. And paint diyas with her nani — a reminder to shine her light brightly all year long. 

  • Nikhil Out Loud by MAULIK PANCHOLY. Thirteen-year-old Nikhil is the beloved lead voice actor on a hit animated space series, but when his mom temporarily moves them to a small town in Ohio to take care of Nikhil’s sick grandfather, Nikhil feels as out of orbit as his character. Nikhil’s fame lands him the lead in the school musical, but when a group of conservative parents start to protest having an openly gay actor in the starring role, and his stage fright acts up, he realizes that some mysteries — like new friendships or a sick grandparent or finding the courage to speak out — don’t wrap up neatly between commercial breaks.

  • The Poison Waves (Secrets of the Sky #2) by SAYANTANI DasGUPTA. Kiya and Kinjal have succeeded in their first quest in the magical world of the Kingdom Beyond, but it quickly becomes obvious that whatever good they achieved might not be enough. Soon after, Princess Pakkhiraj summons them back, and tells them the water pari — winged merpeople — are slowly being poisoned and it is up to the twins to figure it out and put a stop to it. Will they be able to solve this mystery before time runs out?

*One book may be brought from home to be signed for every book purchased at the event.
