The 2022/2023 Inprint Cool Brains! Series proudly presents 2021 Newbery Medal winner Tae Keller, sharing her new novel Mihi Ever After.
TAE KELLER is the winner of the 2021 Newbery Medal for her middle-grade book When You Trap a Tiger. About the New York Times bestselling novel, Booklist writes “Readers young and old will want to trap this story in a jar forever” and School Library Journal adds, “This deeply moving book is a must-purchase for all collections, showcasing vulnerable and mythic storytelling.” Keller is also the author of The Science of Breakable Things, Jennifer Chan Is Not Alone, and She Persisted: Patsy Mink. Her and her husband co-host the podcast Movie Culture.
She joins us to share her new novel Mihi Ever After, the story of three friends who fall into a fairy tale world. Mihi has always wanted to be a princess, but when her friends decide they want to go home she must decide where her true loyalties lie: Should she stay here forever or try to find a way out?
Keller grew up in Honolulu, Hawaii, where she subsisted on kimchi, purple rice, and stories. She is passionate about helping biracial girls find their voices, and lives in Seattle.
