Storytime: Pepper and Frannie

Sat, Nov 9, 2019 from 9:50 am - 10:10 am PST
1200 SW Park Ave Portland, Oregon 97205

This charming, energetic story shows the power of friendship through the teamwork of a lovably mismatched pair. Confident Frannie convinces cautious Pepper to give skateboarding a try, but Pepper’s attempts are not all smooth sailing. Luckily, she has a supportive and enthusiastic friend to cheer her on and help her realize her potential. This story by Catherine Lazar Odell is a relatable look at the ups and downs of trying something new, with an encouraging message about the importance of persevering.

Sweet, lively illustrations complement this empowering tale about learning to fall and to get back up again.

Attendees 17 years of age and younger and/or with valid high school ID enjoy free admission. Advance Portland Book Festival passes available now.
