Marie Tang is on the #ReadingWithYourKids #Podcast to help us celebrate Asian American - Pacific islander Heritage Month and her debut #ChildrensBook Yuna's Cardboard Castles. Marie tells us she was born in Hong Kong, raised in New York City, and was a resident of Shanghai for over a decade. The unique characters and neon lights of the “Big City” are where she derives much of her inspiration. When she needs to escape, she retreats into nature where she ogles at trees, sings with birds, and talks back to chatty squirrels. Despite her conversations with creatures, Marie’s primary writing focus is not on animals but on her people and the deep power of their culture. She proudly tells tales of the grit, tenacity, and compassion of the Asian people.
