Kids' PJ Party with Lily Williams!


Lily Williams at DIESEL, A Bookstore in LarkspurDIESEL, A Bookstore in Oakland welcomes author Lily Williams to the store as our guest bedtime reader on Friday, July 28th at 6pm.

Pull on your PJs and bring your teddy bear to the bookstore! Author Lily Williams will be here to read you a bedtime story from If Sharks Disappeared. Get cozy, listen to a story or two, have some milk and cookies and get your books signed, then head home for bed.

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?

Artist Lily Williams explores how the disappearance would affect other animals across the whole planet in this clever book about the importance of keeping sharks, and our oceans, healthy.
