Kids' PJ Party with Michael Wertz in Oakland!
DIESEL, A Bookstore in Oakland welcomes author Michael Wertz to the store as our guest bedtime reader on Friday, May 26th at 6pm.
Pull on your PJs and bring your teddy bear to the bookstore! Author Michael Wertz will be here to read you a bedtime story from ABC Oakland. Get cozy, listen to a story or two, have some milk and cookies and get your books signed, then head home for bed.
A is for Aviary, a home for the birds; B is for Broadway, from College to Third; C is for Cranes standing tall in the sky; D is for Dogs, wagging tails, saying “hi!”. This enchanting picture book highlights landmarks and themes that exemplify Oakland’s unique culture, from the myriad of food trucks on International Boulevard to the giant redwoods that stretch up to the sky. Michael Wertz’s bold, whimsical prints and jaunty text reflect the city’s energetic and wonderfully diverse atmosphere. Bursting with civic pride, ABC Oakland encourages children and adults alike to explore the possibilities that “the Town” has to offer.
Michael Wertz is an illustrator and printer whose clients include the San Francisco Chronicle, Bill Graham Presents, the de Young Museum, the Exploratorium, Oaklandish, the New York Times, Nike, the Oakland Museum of California, SFMOMA, the United Way, and Wired just to name a few. He is the author of A Dazzling Display of Dogs and A Curious Collection of Cats, and he lives in beautiful Oakland, California.
Copies of ABC Oakland will be available at the event.
