Pop-up: Kate Berube

Sat, Nov 10, 2018 from 1:15 pm - 1:30 pm PST
1219 SW Park Ave Portland, OR 97205

Kate Berube pops-up with her new picture book, Mae’s First Day of School.

Berube is paired with Portrait of My Teacher, Fräulein Sophie von Prieser by Florine Stettheimer; found in the American Art on the 2nd floor of the Portland Art Museum. Please reference the Portland Art Museum Map to find this location.


As Mae’s first day of school approaches she decides she IS. NOT. GOING. School is scary! What if the other kids don’t like her? Or what if she’s the only one who doesn’t know how to write? Or what if she misses her mom? Mae’s anxiety only builds as she walks to school. But then she meets Rosie and Ms. Pearl. Will making new friends show her that they can conquer their fears together?
