UP Notable Book Club: Who Am I?

August 8 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm EDT

UPPAA A book cover titled "Who Am I?" features an adult and a child standing in a colorful, lush garden with various plants and flowers. Both are looking up, with vibrant flowers and green leaves surrounding them. The book is written by Julie Buchholtz and illustrated by Aliya Ghare.

Join us for a conversation with Julie Buchholtz, author of “Who Am I?”

“Who am I?” a young girl asks her mom as she snuggles close. “You are the fire that burns and the eagle that soars. You are the oak tree and the wild rose,” says momma. Written from an Indigenous perspective, Who Am I? tells the story of how we are all connected to our ancestors, our past and future, and the Earth–and how it is everyone’s duty to fend off darkness, connect to the past, offer safety and shelter, and color the world with beauty. An Own Voices, Own Stories Grand Prize winner.
