Indonesia: Tale of a Children's Author
“The stories never ended,” says Sylvia Tanuadji of her father’s reading to her at bedtime. Every night he nodded off to sleep before finishing Cinderella, Snow White, Indonesian folktales, and more. So, Sylvia read them herself. "My family made me love books," she says.
Sylvia’s nights still are steeped with tales at age 54, but now they’re her own. Since her first book in 2009, she has authored 11 children’s books and a teen novel. Sylvia finally sits down to write after working six days a week in admin for a wedding decorating company in Jakarta, Indonesia’s bustling capital.
