June Monthly Meeting

Date(s) - 06/07/2022
7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Interested in Writing in Verse?

If you’d like to learn how to create writing that is lyrical, and uses rhythm and pattern to evoke a response from your readers, join us for our June meeting with picture book and middle grade author, Reem Faruqi.


Reem Faruqi is the award-winning children’s book author of Lailah’s Lunchbox, a book based on her own experiences as a young Muslim girl immigrating to the United States. She’s also the author of Amira’s Picture Day, I Can Help, and two middle grade novels in verse, Unsettled and Golden Girl, which all got starred reviews. After surviving Atlanta traffic and the school drop off, Reem spends her days trying to write, but instead gets distracted easily by her camera and buttery sunlight. Reem Faruqi lives in Atlanta with her husband and three daughters. You can find her at or on Instagram or Twitter.
