Sara’s Presentation for On My Block, September 2007, at Asian Art Museum, San Francisco.

Book: On My Block (Children's Book Press, San Francisco, 2007)

Fifteen illustrators each depicted a place special to them from childhood. Sara chose to illustrate her grandma’s garden—with its 32 stray cats in residence.

Three of the fifteen artists from the book:"On My Block" had a presentation at the San Francisco Asian Art Museum.The artists were: Felicia Hoshino, Conan Low and Sara Kahn.

Each of the three artists built a diorama of their illustrations.
Sara's diorama presented her grandmother's garden (as illustrated in On My Block) without the cats,sara invited the audience to make cats from clay and add them to the garden.

Sara illustrated twenty children's books in Iran. Eight of those books can be seen on the internet at the International Children's digital library Please type the keyword: Sara Iravani
