Grace Lin

Wasn’t Grace Lin fantastic today? She was so inspiring and enthusiastic about what she does. I hope you all find a career one day that brings you that much happiness.

Tonight I want you to respond to the paragraphs below on THIS BLOG. Perhaps type your response up in a Google Doc and then paste it in the comments of this post.

Grace Lin is inspired by personal experiences. You can see how her family’s history comes through in her writing and illustrations. She also incorporates a lot of Chinese cultural history in her work. There seems to be a reason behind all of her choices in her books! 

Please explain at least 2 SPECIFIC times when she has brought her own experiences and Chinese culture into her writing or illustrations.
