Please join independent publisher Sari-Sari Storybooks to celebrate the launch of three new Filipino children's books this fall!
Very busy octopuses, story weavers, and vegetarian monsters are just a few of the characters you can meet in three new picture books from independent publisher Sari-Sari Storybooks. Join us for readings of “Kalipay and the Tiniest Tiktik” (a Cebuano tale), “Amina and the City of Flowers” (a Chavacano tale), and “Melo the Umang-Boy” (an Ivatan Tale).
There will be a book signing by publisher-author Christina Newhard after the reading. Filipino sweets and coffee will be served. All ages are welcome.
