Imagination Friday with Rashin Kheriyeh

Meet Rashin Kheiriyeh, author/illustrator of a new picturebook, Bahar the Lucky. Bahar is determined to help her family earn more money than what she makes selling rugs at the local bazaar. So, she decides to become a fortune teller. After some lucky “accidents” telling fortunes, the king summons her to the palace to be his fortune teller. How will she get herself out of this situation without everyone discovering that she’s a fraud?

Rashin will talk about her new book, her processes in creating the illustrations and story, invite children to draw their own designs, and answer questions.

Imagination Fridays is co-sponsored by the Tucson Festival of Books and Worlds of Words/University of Arizona and will occur every Friday at 1:00-1:40 pm from September to December 2020 with a different author or illustrator each week. Add some excitement to Fridays with world-renowned children’s authors and illustrator to promote new books and encourage children as readers, writers, and illustrators.
