Mitali Perkins

Launch party for Tiger Boy (ages 8-11).

Saturday, April 18, 2015 - 1:00pm

A tiger cub has escaped from a reserve in the Sunderbans in West Bengal, India, and Neel, a poor boy from the islands, is determined to find her in order to save her from being captured and sold on the black market by Mr. Gupta and his men.

Mitali Perkins is the author of numerous books for teens and younger readers, including Monsoon Summer and Secret Keeper. She was born in India and immigrated to the United States with her parents and two sisters when she was seven. Mitali was a guest speaker at Mrs. Dalloway's "Hot Reads for a Cool Summer" event in 2014, and we're thrilled to welcome her back!
