Kabir & Sue Sehgal

Hello from Kabir & Sue Sehgal

Published 6 months ago • 1 min read


It's Kabir Sehgal and Surishtha Sehgal, "Dr. Sue."

We're mother-and-son New York Times bestselling authors (& EMMY® nominees) of 8 picture books about Indian culture.

But enough about that...

You are important to us.

Here's why:

We've probably met at a book reading, school event, social gathering.

You're receiving this note because our orbits have intersected....

We're interested in similar things: education, diversity, children's literature or #kidlit.

But until now - mom and I haven't been in touch.

At least not on a consistent basis.

We were focused on writing our books, reading at schools, talking to other authors, thinking of the next book, drinking chai...

But we think we do something more, maybe even better.

With everything that's going on in the world...

We believe there's value in building a community around diverse children's books....

And giving you more access to the world of authors & kid's literature.

So, here's what we propose:

Monthly Bucket

On the first day of every month, we'll send you a note with some of these:

  • Our top 3 book picks that celebrate diversity
  • Exclusive teacher guides
  • Tips on writing your own stories
  • Inside access to our book-writing process
  • Kid-friendly Indian recipes mmm....

We'll try to do this in 200 words or less (~1 minute read time).

If you're not interested, unregister below. No hard feelings.

Hit reply & let us know what you think. We're open to ideas.
