Grace Lin is a Newbery and Caldecott author and illustrator of more than a dozen picture books, including “The Ugly Vegetables” and “Dim Sum for Everyone!” Most recently, Grace’s first children’s novel “The Year of the Dog” was released with glowing praise. While most of Grace’s books are about the Asian-American experience, she believes, “Books erase bias—they make the uncommon everyday, and the mundane exotic. A book makes all cultures universal.” See more about Grace and her work.
