PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELED.

 

The Teacher Opportunity Corps program within the School of Education is hosting a special event with Jessica Love, author/illustrator of the Stonewall Book Award-winning "Julián is a Mermaid."

Published by Candlewick Press, "Julián is a Mermaid" is a picture book that tells the story of a boy and his Abuela. It is a story about revealing ourselves, and the beauty of being seen for who we are by someone who loves us.

Love grew up in Southern California, raised by a pair of artist parents. She studied printmaking and illustration at the University of California, Santa Cruz, and then went on to study acting at Juilliard.

All members of the campus community are invited to attend this program.
