Grace Lin – “The Path of a Multicultural Author”

Grace Lin is a New York Times bestselling author and illustrator of picture books, early readers and middle grade novels. Her novel Where the Mountain Meets the Moon was awarded the Newberry Honor in 2010 and Lin’s early reader Ling and Ting was honored with the Theodor Geisel Honor in 2011. Most recently, the cover illustration for her novel When the SeaTurned Silver (a 2016 National Book Award finalist) was displayed at the White House, where she was recognized as a Champion of Change for Asian American and Pacific Islander Art and Storytelling. Many of Lin’s books areabout the Asian-American experience because she believes, “Books erase bias, they make the uncommon everyday, and the mundane exotic. A book makes all cultures universal.”
