A Conversation with Children's Author Emi Watanabe Cohen
Join us for a chat with children's author Emi Watanabe Cohen.

Emi tells stories informed by her mixed Japanese/Ashkenazi Jewish heritage, as well as by her experiences growing up in a multilingual environment. Her earliest memories contain a hodgepodge mix of English, Japanese, Korean, Hebrew, and Russian, and she spent eleven years studying Mandarin in school. With her love of languages comes a deep appreciation for all the beautiful things that languages can convey.

Her debut middle grade novel, The Lost Ryu, tells the story of a boy's quest to make his ailing grandfather smile by finding a legendary Japanese dragon. Her next book, Golemcrafters, is slated for release in 2023.
