Book Launch: 'This is Not My Home' by Eugenia Yoh and Vivienne Chang

Tuesday, February 7 | 6:00 PM - 7:00 PM

Subterannean Books 6271 Delmar Blvd, St. Louis, MO 63130

Vivienne Chang and Eugenia Yoh, debut author-illustrators of the incredibly heartfelt and humorous picture book, "This Is Not My Home" will be hosting their official book launch at Subterranean Books! The event will be followed by fun activities, free giveaways, snacks, a book signing, and a Q+A session. Join us as we watch Lily, an angry girl forced to go back to Taiwan, slowly find her way home.

About the Book:

This is not my backyard barbecue.

This is not our car, these are not my fireflies.

This is not my farmer’s market and…

This is not my home.

When Lily’s mom announces their family must move back to Taiwan to take care of her elderly Ah Ma, Lily is devastated to leave behind her whole life for a place that is most definitely not her home. But Lily soon realizes, through the help of her family and friends, what home means to them. And perhaps someday—maybe not today, but someday—it might become her home too.
