Tae Keller grew up in Honolulu, Hawaii, where she subsisted on kimchi, purple rice, and stories. Now, she writes about biracial girls trying to find their voices, and lives in Seattle with her husband and a multitude of books. Her 2021 Newbery award winning title, "When You Trap a Tiger," is a masterpiece of magical realism and is an evocative story of love, loss, and hope that brings Korean folklore to life. Through her halmoni’s tales, Lily learns that with stories we can share our past and shape our future.
For this event, Tae Keller will be in conversation with Jo Schofield, DeHoff Memorial branch manager and member of the 2021 Newbery Medal committee.
