16th Annual Victoria Nikkei Festival

2015 Final Poster Lo res 50Mark your calendars, October 24, from 10-4,  for the 16th annual Nikkei Festival in Victoria.  Kamishibai4Kids will be entertaining the children starting at 11:45am in the kid’s craft room.  My sidekick and I will be reading Fly Catcher Boy using Japan’s old style storytelling theatre, kamishibai (kah-me-she-bye).

After the reading you can find me at the book sale table.  All proceeds from the sale of my book will go to a non-profit in Japan, APRICOT, which has been working to meet the continued needs of so many children who lost family in the Fukushimi tsunami in March 2011. To learn more go to http://www.apricotchildren.org.  The need continues as we approach the 5th anniversary of this tragedy.

Looking forward to seeing you and meeting many new friends.  Oh, yes, there’s one more surprise….but you’ll have to visit the table to see what it is!
