Join author and illustrator Doug Hansen for a fun and imaginative evening of stories and fables.  Hansen’s books Mother Goose in California and Aesop in California bring a special California flavor to these classic tales and fables. He’ll help us understand how he creates illustrations, what illustrators do, and he’ll talk about his own development and influences as an artist. Copies of both books will be available for purchase and signing.

Free and open to the public; for more information visit
