“Hang onto your underpants!”
Here’s your chance to meet Dav Pilkey, children’s author, illustrator and creator of the popular Captain Underpants series. Because he’s so popular, we’re hosting him at OU-Tulsa Schusterman Learning Center (41st and Yale), this Thursday, September 29th, at 5:30pm.
There will be live drawings and great prizes! Captain Underpants and Dog Man will be there to meet and greet. Dav Pikey will be signing books, bring your own copy or Magic City Books will have them for sale! Also, grab a bite to eat at Andolini’s Pizza Truck, they will be selling pizza at the event!
Dav Pilkey began writing and creating comics when he was still in elementary school. His twelfth Captain Underpants book, Captain Underpants and the Sensational Saga of Sir Stinks-a-Lot, was released in 2015. His newest book, the graphic novel spinoff Dog Man, will be released in September. Dog Man is a crime-biting canine who is part dog, part man, and ALL HERO. He “digs into deception, claws after crooks, and rolls over robbers.”
Please bring new and gently used books for our friends at Reading Partners Tulsa.
Reading Partners mobilizes over 1,600 weekly community volunteers who give one-hour per week to provide our research-validated, proven literacy curriculum to K-3rd-grade students in Tulsa public elementary schools. Our volunteers get tremendous results for struggling readers: 90% of K-2 grade students mastered grade-appropriate foundational literacy skills, putting them on track to read at or above grade level by third grade. A component of our program is incentivizing students to read at home through our Take Reading Home libraries where students can share their love of reading with their family and grow in-home reading libraries fill with books that complement their reading levels.
