Lots of fun stuff has been happening in recent weeks! Here’s a roundup!
Holman has been doing lots of school visits around the Lower Mainland, inspiring kids and teachers alike to tap into their creative side. A warm welcome is always appreciated!
On Star Wars Day, May the Fourth, Holman had the privilege of presenting at a Curiosity Collider event on Commercial Drive. Here’s Holman’s presentation in full:
On May 11, Holman presented to hundreds of grade 2 kids in West Vancouver at the West Vancouver Public Library’s Booktopia event. Before his presentation started, he even had movie-theatre style trivia questions come up on screen about him and his work! The kids loved it.
Holman also recently gave presentations and workshops at Southridge Junior School in Surrey, BC. Look at the amazing things first-time felters can make in 90 minutes!
Jack and Holman have just sent oversized posters off to the BookPeople of Moscow for their Art Walk event starting in June. Here’s an image of the Oz poster we’ve sent. There will be four Cozy Classics and four Star Wars Epic Yarn prints in store for several months, so check them out if you’re in Idaho!
Recently, Holman walked through Vancouver’s premiere children’s bookstore, Kidsbooks, only to find that no copies of Star Wars Epic Yarns were in the Star Wars section of the store. He was a little disappointed, until he walked by the bestsellers shelf right by the cashiers!
Finally, it’s great to see that Star Wars Epic Yarns is having its own little life out in the world. A blogger for the School Library Journal reports that at a Michigan elementary school library, Star Wars Epic Yarns: The Empire Strike Back was one of the top 10 circulated picture books of 2016!
