In When Stars We Scattered, Victoria Jamieson recounts the true story of Omar Mohamed and his experience in a refugee camp in Kenya.

Kevin Henkes and Laura Dronzek will be reading from Sun Flower Lion and Summer Song. 

About the presenters:
Victoria Jamieson received her BFA in Illustration from the Rhode Island School of Design and worked as a children’s book designer before becoming a full-time illustrator. 
 
Laura Dronzek is a painter whose work has been exhibited nationally and award-winning children's book illustrator of titles like Tippy-Toe Chick, Go! and White Is for Blueberry.
Kevin Henkes is an American writer and illustrator of children’s books. As an illustrator he won the Caldecott Medal for Kitten’s First Full Moon. “Books are often the first exposure to art that children have. Keeping that in mind urges me to make the very best books possible. I know how important the books from my childhood were (and are) to me. Without them, I might not be a writer and artist today.”

One of Books Inc.’s favorite aspects of being booksellers is getting the chance to welcome and host hundreds of authors a year, from house-hold names to local, debut authors and we look forward to continuing to provide the Bay Area with “The Experience You Can’t Download” in our stores when we can assure authors and guests that it is safe to do so. In the meantime, we are working on an exciting list of virtual events for both adults and children and we look forward to exploring this new format with you.

Sales equate success, and as with in-store events, booksales made from an independent bookstore benefit the author, publisher, and lead to future event bookings. Please help us keep the Bay Area the wonderful literary hub that it is by supporting your local Books Inc.
