Mitali Banerjee Ruths grew up in Houston, Texas. She is an awkward dancer, all-season knitter, and epic sandwich maker. Mitali now lives in Canada with her husband, their three kids, and lots of yarn and books. Mitali wrote her first story when she was eight, but her debut picture book, ARCHIE CELEBRATES DIWALI, comes out from Charlesbridge in 2021. See her charming photo-bio at www.mitaliruths.com.
