Our Authors

The authors of our books were undergraduate college students on the SIT Study Abroad Program in Bolivia. They produced their books as part of the Independent Study Project, a four-week course providing students with the experience of conducting research in a cross-cultural context.

The authors and/or illustrators of these books have used their participation in this project as a springboard for presenting their books at schools and children’s organizations in the U.S., writing articles at their U.S. universities, presenting their research and books at symposiums and conferences, and in applying for funding for future research and book publication.
