In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, Tomos Roberts wrote a hopeful poem for his younger siblings. Since he uploaded it to YouTube, his message has reached over six million viewers. Join Roberts and author/influencer Eva Chen as they discuss the piece—now in a striking picture book illustrated by award-nominated artist Nomoco—and its celebration of creativity, simple acts of kindness, and the other things that have given us hope in this time of global crisis. 

Tomos Roberts—also known as Tomfoolery—is a spoken word poet, performer, and filmmaker. He was born in New Zealand and raised in London, where he currently resides. 

Eva Chen grew up in New York City. After interning and working at several fashion magazines, Chen earned her degree in journalism from Columbia University.
