The Mosaic Community

By Rachna Rikhye

A book about identity, culture, and the meaning of belonging

Set in the town of Takoma Park, Maryland, The Mosaic Community is a heartwarming story of diversity and integration. Invited to contribute to a community mosaic for their town, six culturally diverse children share their personal stories and offer hopes and dreams to their new community through the creative process of making clay mosaic tiles. Beautifully decorated with photographs and rich colors, Rachna Rikhye’s book brings young immigrant voices to life in this story about art, inspiration, and the meaning of belonging.
