Graphic novelists James Parks and Ben Costa to visit Hubbard Elementary

January 10, 2020

Give a signed and personalized copy of a book to one of the deserving students at Hubbard Elementary!

In early February Ben Costa and James Parks, two graphic novelists and co-authors of the graphic novel series Rickety Stitch and the Gelatinous Goo will visit the students at Hubbard Elementary School, where Access Books Bay Area completed a project in 2019. 

This opportunity to see live authors and artists in their school is not one that these students would have otherwise, and we are super excited to be able to provide this amazing experience to them. What would make it even more amazing would be for the students to be able to take home their very own copies of these fabulous books!

You can make this possible by purchasing a single book or set of books to be signed by the authors and given out to the students and teachers at the school. If we recieve enough donations to send one home with every child, that would be wonderful! If not, we will give them out to the teachers to have in their classrooms, and to the students by raffle.
