Thanks to all those who registered for the event!
Unfortunately Jonathan Case experienced some car trouble on his drive up to the Bay Area. He still hopes to make the event, with a shift in time.
The event will now take place with Jonathan from 4:30-5:30pm, and at 4pm we will also have some art materials and guidance if you’d like to get drawing. At that time you would also be able to get a free copy of Little Monarchs while supplies last, along with wildflower seed packets to take home!
We will keep you updated if anything else changes!
Join Eisner-winning cartoonist and Bay Area Book Festival Guest Jonathan Case for an afternoon of drawing, exploration, and a discussion of monarch butterfly ecology at the Tarea Hall Pittman South Branch, outside the Tool Lending Library!

Jonathan is the creator of a highly acclaimed new graphic novel, Little Monarchs, a naturalist/dystopian adventure set exclusively in real geo-marked locations throughout the western states. A key objective of the Little Monarchs book tour is to help distribute native milkweed seeds throughout the country, which supports our struggling monarch population! Attendees of this special event will leave as partners — armed with knowledge and materials to empower themselves and the monarch preservation effort.
Little Monarchs has received starred reviews from Kirkus, Booklist, and Horn Book, and is a Junior Library Guild Gold Standard Selection. Find out more at www.littlemonarchsbook.com and @littlemonarchstour on Instagram.
This event is brought to you by a generous grant provided by Tangled Bank Studios/PBS Nature #PlantWildflowers initiative. More info to come!
