Nadia’s debut picture book, GOODNIGHT GANESHA, will be published by Philomel Books in the fall of 2021. She writes picture book, middle-grade, and graphic novel manuscripts with themes of South Asian and Caribbean culture, STEM, non-fiction, and humor. Nadia is the winner of the 2020 SCBWI Service Award and the 2019 SCBWI WOOP Honor Award for work of outstanding progress for her non-fiction, picture book manuscript, MYRLIE: A VOICE OF HOPE. Her work is represented by Ammi-Joan Paquette of Erin Murphy Literary Agency.

Presentation Description:
I am able to work with most grade levels. I have an interactive presentation on developing hooks for picture books, making a picture book, or hosting a trivia game of Picture Book or Literary Jeopardy for upper grades. Presentations run about 40 - 50 minutes. And, I am also able to add an arts and crafts element depending on the age group.
