“As a seasoned educator, Jyoti Gopal has the ability to connect with young readers and captivate her audience. The Riverdale students were delighted with Ms. Gopal’s presentation of her latest book, My Paati’s Saris. Through her animated and expressive reading, she draws her audience into the pages, where she vividly presents the characters, interspersing stories of her childhood and the feelings behind them. Her reading was punctuated by a wonderful demonstration of sari folding and fitting. We will definitely be inviting her back to share her next book with us!”

Shelia McCorry, Lower School Library Media Specialist, Riverdale Country School, Bronx, NY
