Pop-up: LeUyen Pham

Sat, Nov 10, 2018 from 3:15 pm - 3:30 pm PST
1219 SW Park Ave Portland, OR 97205

LeUyen Pham, illustrator of The Princess in Black and the Science Fair Scare, pops-up in the Portland Art Museum galleries. During this pop-up, Pham will do a live-drawing demonstration!

Pham is paired with Mike the Bite by George Luks; 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.


It’s mayhem at the science fair! A squishy goo monster is a challenge for the Princess in Black — but luckily some science-loving princesses are on hand to help.

Princess Magnolia is excited. Excited and nervous. She’s going to the Interkingdom Science Fair today to present her poster about seeds and plants, and when she arrives, she sees that her friends are there too! Princess Honeysuckle made a mole habitat, Princess Sneezewort has built a blanket fort, and Tommy Wigtower has a talking volcano that’s saying “EAAAAT!” Wait, what? A surprise goo monster makes this a job for the Princess in Black, and the Princess in Blankets is on the scene to lend a hand. But will two masked heroes be enough to save the science fair? A little scientific problem-solving — and a lot of princess power — will make the sixth entry in the New York Times best-selling series a smash hit.
