Patricia Polacco - Remembering Vera (Sausalito)

Friday, October 6, 2017 - 6:00pm

Special Children's Event!

Remembering Vera begins in 1962 when a stray dog was found under a pile of boxes in a Coast Guard warehouse in what used to be called Government Island, the Coast Guard Base in San Francisco Bay, when a seaman named Dave Bunch was mopping the floor. It was love at first sight. At first the men decided to hide the pup from the Commander, thinking she wouldn’t be allowed. But soon enough all of the men in the barracks fell hard for the little dog. Then one day when high waves challenged another vessel at sea, it was Vera’s fierce determination and natural swimming ability that brought the life preserver and safety line to the sinking boat. Vera became a hero and the beloved pet and mascot of the San Francisco Coast Guard.

Patricia Polacco belongs to a family of storytellers, poets, farmers, teachers, and artists. They came from many parts of the world, but mainly Russia. She grew up to be an illustrator, a designer, and creator of many beloved children’s books, including The Keeping Quilt, The Blessing Cup, Fiona’s Lace, The Trees of the Dancing Goats, Babushka’s Doll, and My Rotten Redheaded Older Brother. She lives in Union City, Michigan. Visit her at PatriciaPolacco.com and follow her on Facebook.

SF-Marin Food Bank Benefit: Todd Parr - Love the World (Corte Madera)

Saturday, September 30, 2017 - 11:00am

 

10% of Proceeds from Book Sales to Benefit SF-Marin Food Bank!

Come celebrate the release of Todd Parr’s latest book, Love the World, and help feed your neighbors in need at the same time.  Todd has decided to turn his launch party at Book Passage in Mill Valley into a fundraiser for his new friends at the SF-Marin Food Bank.  With 1 in 5 people in need of food assistance in Marin County alone, it’s more important than ever that we all band together to make sure families, children, seniors and people with disabilities all have access to healthy, nutritious food. SF-Marin Food Bank will have food collection barrels at the event and someone on hand to collect additional donations and volunteer names. 

Todd Parr is the award-winning author and illustrator of more than 40 children’s books. Empathy is at the core of Todd’s stories; they are about acceptance, differences, and promoting empowerment for kids in a simple, fun way. Through his books, Todd has partnered with Target, Reach Out and Read, People Magazine, and several other organizations to promote reading. He has created merchandise for Macy’s, developed his own children’s clothing line, and had work displayed in the windows of FAO Schwarz.

About SF-Marin Food Bank

The SF-Marin Food Bank’s mission is to end hunger in San Francisco and Marin, where one in four neighbors is at risk of hunger. We envision a community where everyone is able to obtain enough nutritious food in a dignified manner to support the health and well-being of themselves and their families. We address hunger head on: from our pantry network and home-delivered groceries, to our nutrition-education classes and food-stamp enrollment, we work in many ways to nourish and empower neighbors in need.  We are on target to distribute more than 48 million pounds of food this year, 60% of which is fresh fruits and vegetables.

A healthy ocean is home to many different kinds of animals. They can be big, like a whale, tiny, like a shrimp, and even scary, like a shark. Even though sharks can be scary, we need them to keep the oceans healthy. Unfortunately, due to overfishing, many shark species are in danger of extinction, and that can cause big problems in the oceans and even on land. What would happen if this continued and sharks disappeared completely?

In If Sharks Disappeared, artist Lily Williams explores how the disappearance would affect other animals across the whole planet and details the importance of keeping sharks, and our oceans, healthy.

Lily Williams is an author, illustrator, and storyteller who seeks to inspire change through education. Her work covers many topics, from the trophic cascade in the award-winning animated documentary short film FINconceivable, to menstruation in the webcomic The Mean Magenta and upcoming graphic novel, Go With The Flow (First Second, 2019). Lily believes in the power of making information fun, educational, and accessible for all audiences. Lily grew up in Northern California where she graduated from California College of the Arts with a B.F.A. in Animation. She spent time working in feature film animation in Los Angeles before diving into freelance full time. When she isn’t creating, Lily can be found dreaming about the smell of cold winter air, listening for the sound of airplanes on a rainy day, playing with her rescue rabbits (Owen and Oliver), and perfecting her waffle recipe.
