About the Author
Dezh Azaad is an Afghan writer who's been a refugee his whole life. He lives in Germany, where he teaches Persian to refugee children and leads seminars for teens and young adults on social change, race, and the climate crisis. Azaad loves tinkering with electronics and cooking meals that take five hours to make and five minutes to eat. He is the author of The Carpet: An Afghan Family Story. Nan Cao is a New York-based illustrator. Her work is inspired by surrealistic imagery and her daily life in the big city. When she is not drawing, Cao loves to hang out with the squirrels in the park, daydream under the sun, or get lost in her book collection. She has worked with clients such as Johns Hopkins Magazine, Anorak Magazine, Link NYC, Bulletin Magazine, Spectrum, and Washingtonian magazine. Cao holds an MFA in illustration as visual essay from the School of Visual Arts. Her work has been recognized by American Illustration, Society of Illustrators, Communication Arts, AOI, 3x3, and Creative Quarterly.
"A lovely tribute to family and the continuity of rituals that bind generations together."-- "Kirkus"
"This companion title to 2023's The Carpet puts readers in an idyllic rural setting as a happy family of four sets about harvesting cherries...the picnic takes on a deeper meaning: the passing on of traditions, honoring of ancestors, and making of memories...illustrations add a cheerful tone."-- "Booklist"
