Author Jerry Zhang will read to children and their families from his new book, Pepper Zhang, Artist Extraordinaire. The children’s book was born out of a father’s mission to write a book for his daughter that doesn’t currently exist: an inspirational book with a strong Asian girl as the main character. Yes, Pepper Zhang is Asian, and no this book is not a book about Asian culture — it’s just a fun and dynamic story that children of all backgrounds can enjoy! At its core, “Pepper Zhang, Artist Extraordinaire!” is an extraordinary story about an ordinary little girl who discovers an interest in art and transforms into an “Artist Extraordinaire!” Through her journey into fame and stardom, Pepper learns an important life lesson about humility. The program is sponsored by the Human Relations Commission and the Highland Park Public Library.
