Author Nidhi Chanani Visits ACHS

On October 12, graphic novelist and Disney artist Nidhi Chanani visited students in ACHS HILT/English classes to share with us her graphic novel “Pashmina”, the story of a young Indian-American girl who, with the help of a magical pashmina, explores her Indian roots. Ms Chanani told our students how a love of drawing and reading books encouraged her to attend art school, freelance her own art work, apply for a Disney residency, and finally write her own book. The event was sponsored by An Open Book Foundation. All students and teachers received a free copy of the book to take home.
