Program Description

Event Details

Veera Hiranandani, author of How to Find What You're Not Looking For, will discuss her book, winner of the 2022 Jane Addams Children's Book Award.

In this new historical fiction YA novel from the Newbery Honor-winning author, 12-year-old Ariel Goldberg's life changes when her big sister elopes with a young man from India following the 1967 Loving v. Virginia Supreme Court decision, which struck down laws banning interracial marriage.

This happens as Ariel's family's Jewish bakery runs into financial trouble. As change becomes Ariel's only constant, she's left to grapple with both her family's prejudice and the antisemitism she experiences while defining her own beliefs.

Registration required.

Co-sponsored by the Jane Addams Peace Association.
