The Worries Book Group with Jion Sheibani (ages 5-9)

January 8 @ 11 h 00 min - 12 h 00 min

For ages 5–9


Join us for a book group discussion about The Worries: Sohal Finds a Friend. Author and illustrator Jion Sheibani will host this book group, and lead the discussion with participants. All participants should finish reading the chapter book before we meet!


About Jion Sheibani: Jion is the author and illustrator of Lily & The Polar Bears and The Worries young fiction series. She grew up in Brighton and now lives in Paris with her family. She’s a self-taught illustrator and studied English literature at Oxford University. When she moved to Paris, she taught English to students at Sciences Po and ENSAE universities before opening her own language school for children, Anglofun. Now, she mainly draws and writes in her garden studio. As well as picture books and young fiction, she also writes and illustrates for older readers. Her first YA novel, The Silver Chain, will  be released in April 2022. Find out more about Jion and her work here.

Each child (aged 5–9) may participate in the program on their own, while their chaperone remains inside the Library.

This live, interactive event will be hosted in the Children’s Library—Juvenile.
