Draw, Read, Eat!
All of his Oakland Public Library appearances will include a short read-aloud and tips on how to draw. Additionally, a free, healthy lunch will be served to youths ages 0–18, as part of the Free Summer Lunch Program held at many Oakland Library locations. Free Summer Lunch is provided by the Alameda County Food Bank in partnership with the City of Oakland.
Mr. Parr suggested the series of appearances as a gesture of support for Free Summer Lunch and the Library’s Summer Reading Program. Mr. Parr is donating his time free of charge. Come see him at:
