Two new books introduce the world of Japanese animation and manga, and the life of illustrator Tyrus Wong, to young readers. Don’t miss this event with two local animation and art directors! 

Anime and manga have never been more popular. How did iconic characters like Totoro or Pokemon become Japanese pop culture and attract a worldwide following? And how did Tyrus Wong, a Chinese American immigrant, bring Disney’s Bambi to life?

Join us for an event celebrating two new books that introduce the world of Japanese animation and manga, and the life of the artist Tyrus Wong to young readers. San Francisco-based writer Oliver Chin, a co-author of The Discovery of Anime and Manga, will share his book about a time traveling panda named Dao who transports two young companions to the early days of anime and manga in Japan. Oakland-based illustrator Chris Sasaki will share his storyboards from a new picture-book biography Paper Song: The Inspiring Story of Tyrus Wong, Immigrant and Artist, written by Julie Leung.

Co-presented by Oakland Asian Cultural Center and Eastwind Books of Berkeley.
