A. Watch Dragon Boats race!
dog Enjoy the Northern California International Dragon Boat Festival this coming weekend at Lake Merritt in Oakland, CA. In this 23rd annual celebration a fleet of colorful 40-foot dragon boats race to the beat of Chinese drums on September 15th and 16th.

This free festival brings world-class races, cultural performances, and Immedium's kid-friendly booth at Dragon Land. Here families can delight in our colorful storybooks.

This is our 13th year in attendance and one of our favorite events of the year! We look forward to seeing you.

B. Giveaway: SF CalAcademy tickets!
Oliver Chin reads storytimes at the spectacular California Academy of Sciences in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park on September 28th and October 13th. Each reading features a simultaneous bilingual translation in Chinese.

This month, Oliver presents the crowd favorite Sid the Squid and the Search for the Perfect Job by David Derrick.

We have free 4 tickets to give to SF Bay area residents for September's storytime! Come as Oliver's guests - meet him at the museum on Friday (9/28) at 9:30 am and get free admission.

C. Fireworks getting ready
Thanks to everyone who supported our recent Kickstarter campaign for
The Discovery of Fireworks and Gunpowder, the sequel in our series The Asian Hall of Fame.

The project was successfully funded and we're busy producing the book for printing. It should be finished and ready to ship by Thanksgiving.

If you're interested, feel free to pre-order an autographed copy!

"...certainly Jeff Miracola's illustrations that bring this story and it's beasts to life. I love that the Yowie (Australian Bigfoot) makes an appearance! This is definitely a book with kid appeal!"

Chaff n' Skaffs

"Their trip takes them through colorful and fantastic lands, vividly portrayed by Luke Feldman's gorgeously stylized illustrations... A simple yet charming story distinguished by its unforgettable artwork style."
