Del Mar - Storytime - Sunday August 7th at 3:00 pm - Eric Abramian reads "Pierre the Umbrella in Paris"
Join us for Storytime on Sunday August 7th at 3:00 pm as we welcome Eric Abramian to the store to read and sign Pierre the Umbrella in Paris.
This event is free to attend and will be held at Diesel, A Bookstore in Del Mar. Masks are required to attend.
Pierre is an adorable red umbrella with a broken spring. Abandoned at the steps of a Paris Metro, he is left to fend for himself on a cold rainy night in the “City of Light”. Pierre travels across treasured Parisian landmarks in search of something more meaningful than his conventional role of protecting people from the rain. With a passion for studying art history, he wonders if art is only for humans. After overcoming his self-doubt, Pierre sets out for his favorite museum where he becomes a hero to the art world and gains a new sense of confidence! Pierre the Umbrella in Paris is a lesson that art means feeling part of something larger than oneself. It is meant to instill in children an appreciation for art, culture, and creativity, and to emphasize the importance of developing a passion at an early age. Beautifully illustrated with references to iconic Parisian landmarks, fashion, and art, Pierre is a book for both parents and children to appreciate, particularly written for ages three to nine.
