Storytime Friends

I’m thrilled and honored to be part of a meaningful collaboration, STORYTIME FRIENDS, a community-centered initiative that brings the joy of picture books to children’s hospitals.

In 2021, four picture book author friends came together to support each other’s work and found a common desire to share our books in meaningful ways. This led to a partnership with Peter Limata of Storytime with Mr. Limata and more than thirty Bay Area authors.

STORYTIME FRIENDS brings the power of storytelling to children in hospitals through weekly video-recorded read-alouds, in-person author/illustrator visits, and picture book give-aways. ​

We have partnered with UCSF for our inaugural year and are excited to hear from hospitals interested in collaborating with STORYTIME FRIENDS in 2023-24.
