Spring 2015 Picture Book Showcase


Join the Oakland Public Library as we showcase our favorite picture books of the season!

Children’s picture books represent some of the finest illustration and commercial art available to the public; they are many people’s first experience with fine art, and one of the most affordable vehicles for purchasing art for the home.  We’ll examine our favorite releases of Spring 2015  and take a look at the illustrators behind the work and their techniques.

Copies of the books will be available for purchase.

The Octopus is a literary salon, re-interpreted in the 21st Century to engage and entertain readers and writers of all ages in Uptown Oakland, California. The Octopus Literary Salon includes a café, a small-scale specialty bookstore and publisher, and a space for public readings and discussions as well as other literary spontaneity.
