Self-publishing Bilingual Picture Books with Kinota Braithwaite

Created October 24, 2023 by Mari Boyle


Join us on November 10th to find out what it takes to self-publish bilingual picture books. Author, Kinota Braithwaite, shares his experience of bringing important messages about racism and bullying right to the source via his recently published English/Japanese bilingual picture books, Mio the Beautiful, Mio’s Wish, and Kei the True Friend.

In this conversation, we ask Kinota Braithwaite about the ins and outs of self-publication and crowdfunding, why it is important to publish these books right here and right now, what it was like to work with a translator for the Japanese translation, and how the reception for these books has been so far.
