Press Release:

Join local author and illustrator, Jake Parker, for a reading and signing of his new picture book, Little Bot and Sparrow, at the King’s English on Saturday, October 1, 2016 at 11:00 AM.

When Little Bot is thrown out with the garbage, he meets his first true friend, a bird named Sparrow, who takes him under her wing. Sparrow teaches Little Bot about the perils of flying, her wild world, and the importance of dreaming.

As winter arrives, Sparrow must leave and fly south, and they share a tearful good bye. Little Bot revisits where he and Sparrow shared happy memories, and that night, for the first time, he dreams–of him and Sparrow taking flight together.

Places in the signing line are reserved for those who purchase a copy of Little Bot and Sparrow from The King’s English.

CA – Imaginary Friends Art Exhibition

Comments Off on CA – Imaginary Friends Art Exhibition

Gallery Nucleus hosts an art show on Saturday April 19, 2014 at 7:00 pm!

Press Release:

Wrought from the depths of our creativity, imaginary friends have been steadfast companions through amazing journeys and have helped to overcome unbelievable hardships. Despite being figments of our imaginations, these fantastical comrades cultivate immense growth and represent very real bonds.

Inspired by these unreal friendships, award-winning children’s book illustrator Dan Santat‘s The Adventures of Beekle: The Unimaginary Friend weaves a tale about companionship, courage, and finding one’s place in the world.  Beginning on an island far away where imaginary friends are born, one patiently waits his turn to be chosen by a real child, but when Beekle is overlooked time and again, he sets off on an incredible journey to the bustling city, where he finally meets his perfect match.

In conjunction with the release of Dan Santat’s book, Nucleus celebrates these not-so-real friendships with a roster of some of our favorite artists, including noteable children’s book illustrators, who would like to introduce all of us to their very own imaginary friends. Join us opening night as we pay tribute to friends both real and imagined.
