Spring Break Week is Unicorn Week at Driftwood Public Library
Best-selling cartoonist Dana Simpson, of Phoebe and Her Unicorn, to present a live virtual Q&A
On Wednesday, March 24 at 3 PM, Driftwood Public Library will host a live virtual author talk with Dana Simpson, the bestselling cartoonist behind Phoebe and Her Unicorn. Alongside the event, Driftwood staff will present a virtual unicorn storytime, as well as a take-and-make unicorn craft.
The comic strip, which is syndicated in over 100 newspapers nationwide, tells the story of nine-year-old Phoebe Howell’s humorous adventures with her best friend, a unicorn named Marigold Heavenly Nostrils. The collected editions of the comic strips and associated graphic novels have regularly appeared on the New York Times bestseller lists for children’s graphic novels, have received the Pacific Northwest Book Award and the Washington State Book Award, and are perennial favorites at Driftwood Public Library. The comic is also in development by Nickelodeon as a children’s series.
The virtual talk is open to all ages and will take place virtually via Zoom. Ms. Simpson’s presentation will be geared toward children, and kids are encouraged to ask questions about her work and Phoebe’s world!
