*This event has been cancelled with a reschedule date TBD.*

Michael Genhart, PhD & Priscilla Burris join us for a special storytime celebrating their touching collaborative picture book, Accordionly: Abuelo and Opa Make Music. (Ages 4+)

When both grandpas, Abuelo and Opa, visit at the same time, they can't understand each other's language and there is a lot of silence. The grandson's clever thinking helps find a way for everyone to share the day together as two cultures become one family. This unique book includes a bonus fold-out and a note from the author sharing the true story of his own family.

Michael Genhart, PhD, is the descendant of Mexican Americans and Swiss Americans, and is a licensed clinical psychologist in private practice in San Francisco. He has also written Rainbow: A First Book of Pride; Cake & I Scream!...being bossy isn't sweet; Mac & Geeeez!...being real is what it's all about; Peanut Butter & Jellyous...sometimes friendships get sticky; Ouch! Moments: When Words Are Used in Hurtful Ways; I See You; and So Many Smarts! He lives with his family in Marin County. Visit MichaelGenhart.com or visit him on Facebook @picturebookauthor.

A native Californian of Hispanic descent, author-illustrator Priscilla Burris counts herself blessed to have grown up across her neighborhood street from the local public library in East Los Angeles, where her love and devotion for children's books was born. Creating characters and images whether in the real world or digitally, Priscilla delights most in bringing out the element of expression and emotion.  She is enthusiastically involved in the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators (www.scbwi.org) as the U.S. Illustrator Coordinator & Advisor, as well as a member of their Board of Advisors.

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.
