About the Author

Bijal Vachharajani has a habit of hugging strange trees whom she meets on her travels. When not hugging trees and talking to caterpillars who live on those trees, she's either reading or writing or editing a children's book. She is the winner of the AutHer Award for the Best Children's Book in 2020 and 2022, the former editor of Time Out Bengaluru, and is currently a commissioning editor at Pratham Books. She has a master's in environment security and peace from the University for Peace. Part of the Abhiyan Library movement, she is now a certified climate worrier.


"A book of magic. It's about trees and even if there were no talking trees and wasps that communicate, it would still be magic because trees are magic. When you have finished, you'll want to go out and hug a tree. (Just do it.)"

-- "Jerry Pinto, bestselling author"

"I never expected a book about grief to make me laugh out loud so many times! Savi's story bursts with heart, humor, empathy, affection, and just the right amount of magic. Each page feels more truthful than the last. A touching page-turner for all ages."

-- "Mathangi Subramanian, acclaimed author of A People's History of Heaven"

"Vachharajani's books are so inspirational--they remind us that no matter how scary things may get, how imperfectly we may behave or how hopeless we may sometimes feel, the fight for our planet isn't over."

-- "Vogue India"

"Enchanting, witty, and achingly beautiful, Savi and the Memory Keeper is at once fantastical and real--where tree hugs heal and wasps are saviors. The author skillfully weaves a narrative of personal and climate grief, and the healing power of Nature."

-- "Prerna Singh Bindra, wildlife conservationist and writer"

"Savi and the Memory Keeper takes the reader on a journey that walks a line between fantasy, reality, humor, and poignance...Snarky and guarded in the wake of her father's death, Savi ends up showing us how connection--to plants and animals, to her mother and sister--can be the key both to self-renewal and to saving our planet."

-- "Gail Lerner, acclaimed author of The Big Dreams of Small Creatures"

"Part environmental fable, part coming-of-age tale, Savi and the Memory Keeper is tender, charming, and deep--a wonderful book."

-- "Gayle Forman, New York Times bestselling author of If I Stay"
