FREE Live Virtual Author Reading of “Marie Discovers Her Superpowers!”
March 18 @ 10:00 am - 10:30 am
Join Dr. Chaitra Wirta-Leiker for a FREE live, virtual reading of her first book in the “Adoptees Like Me” series, “Marie Discovers Her Superpowers!” (And get a sneak peek of the second book, “Casey Conquers Bedtime,” set for release in Spring 2023!)
Description: Marie doesn’t want to go back to the park after a family of strangers asks too many personal questions about her adoption. Her mom introduces her to Dr. Chaitra, a therapist who is a transracial adoptee just like Marie. In therapy, Marie learns that adoptees have the power to handle those pesky questions in very special ways . . . but does she feel ready to return to the park?
Bio: Dr. Chaitra is an international and transracial adoptee from India. She traveled to the United States as a tiny baby, escorted in a basket with three other babies, and she’s pretty sure that’s why she likes her space when she sleeps now. When she’s not sleeping, she loves cooking, gardening, reading, hiking, kayaking, organizing office supplies, and eating French fries. She also loves spending time with other adoptees of all ages, including her own child, because she knows about all of the remarkable things that can happen when adoptees connect with each other. Dr. Chaitra wishes that every single adopted person in the world could visit her therapy office and talk with her about what it’s like to be an adoptee, but because that’s not possible, she decided to invite everyone into her therapy room by creating the “Adoptees Like Me” series.
