AVAC® Member Pirjo Polari- Khan has been selected to be the performer of the year by the Finlandia Foundation National. She will be traveling across the United States making presentations in different cities to the local organizations. The Foundation is located in 24 different States.
Although Pirjo is well known for her work as a sculptor, she was chosen for her new book “Etiquette village”; a book of Manners, Wisdom, and Poetry for children. To make her presentation appealing to her young audience, she developed a puppet named “Double U & Double Me.” It is one of the book’s many delightful characters helping to make children of all ages into good citizens of the world.
