A picture book about the places we go to create, inspired by Virginia Woolf and her noted essay
Sometimes Virginia Woolf wrote her stories in a garden shed. Sometimes she wrote them among stacks of books in a cool basement. And you? Where do you go to think, to dream, to be? The shade beneath a tall tree? The brick step on a city stoop? The cozy spot beneath the kitchen table? Or inside the night’s deep dark? Not all rooms require four walls and a roof. Inspired by the writer Virginia Woolf and her celebrated essay, “A Room of One’s Own,” A Room of Your Own is about the importance of claiming a space for oneself.
"Colorful watercolors in spot art and larger scenes depict diverse girls and boys under a tree, on a neighborhood sidewalk, at the kitchen table, under a bedsheet fort, and in more spaces."Kirkus Reviews —
"Together, images and text combine for an unequivocal ode to the necessity of being oneself, and of having time alone."Publishers Weekly —
