Welcome to the official site of Mitali Perkins. I'm the author of several books and speak here and there. I used to crawl out on the fire escape to read and write when we first immigrated to Flushing, Queens. It was a safe place for me; I try to offer a safe place for young people in my stories and author visits. Browse around at leisure to get to know more about me. I'd like to know more about you, too, so feel free toconnect.
