Take a deep breath! Author and Stanford University physician Diana Farid and illustrator Billy Renkl are joining us for a virtual event to teach us the science behind breathing. Together they will read their poetic new picture book, WHEN YOU BREATHE, play a short game of trivia with the audience, and lead attendees in a deep breathing activity, inspired by the book. For this virtual event we are partnering with the national nonprofit Reach Out and Read, that champions the positive effects of reading daily and engaging in other language-rich activities with young children. Save your spot in the free event below!

A poetic and visually breathtaking look at what happens inside your body when you breathe. 

What happens when you breathe? In this beautiful book, breath—the very air, stardust, the grand molecules of the universe—blossoms in the upside-down tree in your rising chest, animating and enlivening you. And when you breathe out, you send your song out into the world.

Diana Farid is a staff physician and professor at Stanford, a filmmaker, and a published poet. In addition to poetry, she writes picture books and is working on her first novel in verse. This is her first book for Cameron Kids. She lives in the Bay Area.
