Spring 2015 Picture Book Showcase

What has eight legs and some of the best picture books of the season? OPL's Spring 2015 Picture Book Showcase at the Octopus Literary Salon, of course!

Let's face it: everyone who's into illustration, cartooning, design or just plain old fine art is into the art of the picture book. Next Thursday, May 21, the Oakland Public Library is joining the Octopus Literary Salon to show off some of our newest favorites....

It's the Spring 2015 Picture Book Showcase! Won't you come on over, buy yourself a drink, and enjoy the show? A surprise musical guest will make an appearance. Copies of the books will be for sale, too.
