Celebrate WHY ARE YOU SO QUIET? November 20
Author Jaclyn Desforges and illustrator Risa Hugo are not able to hold a launch party for their very first picture book due to the pandemic. So we are holding a #BOOKLANDING
Into a world where it often seems nobody is listening comes a poignant story that celebrates the power of silence.
“Why are you so quiet?” Her teacher implores it, her classmates shout it, even her mom wonders it. Everyone, it seems, is concerned for Myra Louise. So, in search of an answer to the tiresome question nobody will stop asking, she invents a listening machine. If the raindrops, or the crickets, or the dryers at the laundromat can tell her why they’re so quiet, maybe Myra Louise can finally make everybody understand. But the more she listens, the less interested she becomes in finding any answer at all. Because Myra Louise comes to realize that all she really needs is someone else to listen alongside her.
