Picture Book Launch Event!

Picture Book Launch Event!

August 8th, at 6PM EST
17th Street Location

Join Books of Wonder for the Beautiful Launch of My Bollywood Dream by AVANI DWIVEDI!

My Bollywood Dream, the brilliant debut picture book from author/illustrator AVANI DWIVEDI, shares the story of how a Bollywood film brings people together — and inspires a little girl’s budding ambition — in a heartfelt and joyful picture book! This exciting event will also feature a Bollywood dance demo from dancer Ojee Sharma! 

In My Bollywood Dream, it’s Friday night, and on the bustling streets of Mumbai, a girl heads out with her family to the cinema. As she rides through the winding blocks with her maa, baba, and bhai, old melodies fill the car. And as she captures the sights and sounds of the city with her camera, she imagines a movie unfolding before her eyes. A choreographed dance sequence atop a long line of cars! When they arrive at the screening, the room is abuzz with people from all walks of life, waiting to lose themselves in the show. And finally comes the best part: time for everyone to jump up and dance! My Bollywood Dream is a buoyant, whimsically illustrated love letter to Mumbai and Bollywood — and to children everywhere eager to take mastery of their dreams.

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