Book launch and signing for Bolivar, a new picture book / graphic novel hybrid by Charlottesville local author and illustrator Sean Rubin. Bolivar tells the tale of the last dinosaur left anywhere, who lives in New York City because he doesn't want anyone to notice him. 10% of all proceeds to benefit the Haven, where a portion of the book was illustrated.
Praise for Bolivar: "Debut author-illustrator Rubin spins a delightful tale that captures the childhood frustration of not being taken seriously by adults, as well as an amusing exploration of curiosity and friendship. The intricate details of the carefully crosshatched artwork and gorgeous panoramic scenes of street life give readers a great many things to discover in each panel. It’s an irreverent but loving tribute to a city whose residents have seen it all but sometimes miss what’s right in front of them, too." - Publishers Weekly Starred Review
