Del Mar - Sunday November 13th at 3 pm - Pam Fong Reads and Signs "A Spark In the Dark".

Join us Sunday November 13th at 3 pm as we welcome Pam Fong to the store to read and sign A Spark In the Dark.

This event will be held at DIESEL, A Bookstore in Del Mar. 

A Spark In the Dark is a powerful picture book about the ocean of feelings inside all of us. Whether you are mad, sad, scared, or lost in the dark, there’s always hope -- a spark of light to lead you back home. A Spark in the Dark is a book to read aloud, a book to share, and a book to return to whenever you need it. There is light, and there is dark. But sometimes the dark creeps up and surrounds you. Still, even in those deep, dark moments, you can always find a spark of light, if you look. Because while you need light to find your way through the dark, you also need dark to see the light. Author-artist Pam Fong’s gentle text and luminous artwork guide readers through the dangers and marvels of the deep sea with an expressive little fish who must find its way home. A lush and moving picture book that gives young readers -- and their parents -- a way to think about and talk about the wide ocean of emotions that everyone feels.
Born in Ping-Tung, Taiwan, Pam Fong came to the US when she was 2 years old and grew up in Southern California.  As with many immigrant families, language was initially a barrier. Pam’s mother took her and her two brothers nearly every day to the public library, where silence was the great equalizer. Pam lost herself in the numerous picture books and a life-long passion was planted. Pam studied Visual Arts & Art History at UC San Diego, and later received a Masters in Arts Management from Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh. She worked as a gallery manager in Paris, and a museum curator in America. After many years in curation, Pam established a successful career in fundraising and development for a number of arts, education, and healthcare non-profits, including the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. In 2010, Pam started her own successful graphic and website design company, to gain more freedom to pursue her love for storytelling.  
Her first book, Rou and the Great Race, which she wrote and illustrated, was published in September of 2020. This was followed by Once Upon A Forest, a wordless picture book that was released in March of 2022. Pam has two additional titles coming in 2023Hedgehog and the Log and When the Fog Rolls In. She now works full-time as an author and illustrator, lives in San Diego with her husband and is the mother of two grown boys.
