Storytime for Young Readers is our ongoing series highlighting local children’s book authors! These live reading events are free and open to the public.
Kari Lavelle is the author of WE MOVE THE WORLD (HarperCollins, 2021), the BUTT OR FACE? series (Sourcebooks, 2023) and AN ODE TO GRAPEFRUIT: HOW JAMES EARL JONES FOUND HIS VOICE (Knopf, 2024).
She has always had a love for words: as a kid reading books, as a speech pathologist helping children communicate, and now as a writer creating stories. She grew up in the Midwest but now lives in Austin, Texas with her husband, their two children, and doggo, Dobby.
