Join the WashU Alumni Association for a virtual conversation and reading with author Livia Blackburne, editor Connie Hsu, and illustrator Julia Kuo, BFA ’07, of I Dream of Popo.
I Dream of Popo presents a story about a young girl who immigrates to California from Taiwan and her relationship with the grandmother she leaves behind. This event will feature a short reading, and then Livia, Connie, and Julia will discuss the immigrant experience, the nuances of growing up between two worlds, and how linguistic and geographic distance affects family relationships. Watch the trailer for I Dream of Popo here. You can buy I Dream of Popo at Bookshop, or purchase a signed copy from The Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art while supplies last.
