An Afternoon with Marie Kondo
About An Afternoon with Marie Kondo
Marie Kondo is a tidying expert, bestselling author, star of Netflix’s hit show "Tidying Up with Marie Kondo," and founder of KonMari Media, Inc. Enchanted with organizing since her childhood, Kondo began her career as a tidying consultant while a 19-year-old university student in Tokyo. Today, she is a renowned tidying expert helping people around the world to transform their cluttered homes into spaces of serenity, inspiration, and joy.
"Kiki & Jax: The Life-Changing Magic of Friendship" is an endearing picture book for young readers from Marie Kondo together with Salina Yoon, beloved children’s book creator. Inspired by Kondo’s KonMari Method, this delightful and heartwarming tale teaches young ones how to create openings for joy in all parts of life.
Kiki and Jax are best friends, and they couldn’t be more different. Kiki is a collector, who loves her nuts, pine cones, books, and toys. Jax is a sorter who enjoys finding places for his favorite games, costumes, and sports equipment. The one thing they always agree on is how much fun they have together. But when things start to get in the way, can they make space for what has always sparked joy—each other?
Joining Kondo at her Live Talks Los Angeles event will be Salina Yoon, a Geisel Honor–winning author/illustrator of a dozen picture books and early readers and nearly 200 innovative novelty books for young readers.
