Katy Farina ’09 has sold her first book to Sterling Publishing.

Farina hopes the graphic novel, titled Song of the Court, will help young readers identify anxiety and have a conversation about it with their guardians. The book follows Arietta as she tries to sell her family’s violin in order to make money for her passion of gardening. When the princess asks her to play the violin however, Arietta has to deal with the fact that she doesn’t know how. 

“I hope this book can offer a ray of sunshine through those cloudy days for anyone who needs it.” —Farina
