This special event is to share Filipino & Fil-Am culture to foster curiosity, respect, & love for the Philippine culture in our children at an early age.
After reading “I am Flippish!” I will be selling autographed copies for a special price of $12 (tax included) and 10% of the sales will go to the FACC – SLAA Bayani Campaign. This campaign is an umbrella for future educational events and workshops organized by the Fil-Am Chamber of Commerce – Southbay LA Area whose plan is to help create & support heros in our community.
I will be joining Filipina Author Fe P. Koons who will be reading from a children’s book she co-wrote “7 stories from 7 sisters” and Filipino Artist Ricky Maginsay, who is an Assistant Director for the Simpsons and he will be teaching the kids how to draw.
With my fabulous illustrator Adolph Soliz and fellow author Ron Noble
The Orange County Children’s Book Festival is an amazing and fun event for the family. This festival is very important in helping promote literacy and love for books to children. A well-read child is a happy child whose world opens up to all kinds of possibilities.
l will be at the Orange County Children’s Book Festival this Saturday, September 30th 2012. Come get your personally signed copy of “I am Flippish!” and say hello. I will be at the Author’s Corner (#26) from 1:00 to 4:30 p.m. I hope to see you there!
