6:30 p.m. Eureka Library, local author Peter Jain, Can Emu Really Sing Jambo?

Wednesday, May 23, 2018

Join local author Peter Jain for a playful reading of his new book 'Can Emu Really Sing Jambo?' It's a bilingual book, so the Spanish title is 'Puedes Emu cantar realmente Jambo?' Mr. Jain is about to retire from 29 years of teaching music at Pine Hill and South Bay Elementary Schools, and the book reflects his love of music and learning. Students from South Bay School created the artwork for the book, which was published collaboratively by Humboldt State University Press and SequoiaSong Publications.
