Students at Oakland International High School have come to California from all around the world — most of them, in the last few years. Through a project led by art teacher Thi Bui, the teenagers have told their stories in graphic novel form.
I wrote about this project in the fall of 2010; now the collection of stories is coming out in a book.
The book launch is from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. tonight (Thursday) at the main branch of the Oakland Public Library, 125 14th St. The event is in the teen zone on the second floor.
Books are $25 — and, if you go, you’ll get a signed copy. You can also find it on Amazon.
