Marjan Vafaian’s Edinburgh events are cancelled!

Marjan Vafaian (Vafaeian)

Marjan Vafaian (Vafaeian)

We were informed yesterday that unfortunately, Marjan Vafaian’s visa was refused and she cannot attend Edinburgh Book Festival in August. She was travelling from Iran and had all the requested documents to get the visa.

We are especially saddened that children will miss her workshops and unique artworks in Edinburgh and London in late August. Hope we can have her in the UK for events in the future.

Marjan is the illustrator of The Parrot and the Merchant and Bijan & Manije published by Tiny Owl.

You can see a gallery of her works here.

We need more multicultural books

We got a wonderful review for A Rainbow in My Pocket by Anita Silvey (author and literary critic) in her facebook:

Today I read A Rainbow in My Pocket, first published in Persian, and now available from Tiny Owl Press in London. Ali Seidabadi and Hoda Haddadi have captured the whimsical thoughts of a young Iranian girl, who reminds me of many young Americans. I was particularly taken with these lines: “I wish people/Would talk using only nice words- /Poetry/ Songs,/ Not harsh words/ That prod/ And poke you.” We need more multicultural books in our home and library collections and also more books created in other countries like A Rainbow in My Pocket. Thank you Ali for this inspiring and beautiful book.
