Politics and Prose is delighted to partner with the Takoma Park Maryland Library for an exciting presentation by author Patricia Tanumihardja to discuss her debut picture book, Ramen for Everyone.

About the Book:

Mix! Slice! Shred! These are the preparations Hiro watches his dad undertake to make the special ramen every Sunday night. But when he tries to make it himself, it doesn’t taste the same. But then Hiro realizes that ramen does not have to be perfect in the traditional sense, but perfectly tailored for each family member, showing that ramen is a meal based on love. The zippy illustrations make the story come to life, and suggestions for personalized ramen accompany the recipe.
