The Initiative

Have you ever flipped through a pre-loved book and fallen in love the notes left behind by the previous owner? The best part about secondhand books is discovering these scribbles and inscriptions. For the first time, Rupi's third book home body is going on a big adventure! Over the next few months, one very special copy of home body will be traveling across the United States and into the hands of special readers. They will have the chance to read, reflect, and write notes directly onto its pages. They can doodle in it, colour in an illustration, write a love note to the next reader, press flowers onto their favourite page. Each will leave their unique mark and then when they're done: the book gets passed along to the next!

Where to next?

To all Rupi's readers around the world: we haven't forgotten about you. The sisterhood of the traveling book will be making its way across the seas one day. We promise!!!! Until then - follow the first journey of the traveling book with us right here on
