We saw @dav_pilkey the author of the Captain Underpants & Dogman series speak last night at The Redondo Beach Performing Arts Center. It was completely sold out and packed to the gills with 6-11 year old boy energy. He spoke honestly and comedically about growing up with ADHD and dyslexia and how he felt singled out and alone in school as a child. He asked if anyone was familiar with this and what looked like half of the audience’s hands went up, proud to be acknowledged! It was very moving. He also spoke fondly of his mother and how she was such a positive light in his life and how he turned these feelings of less than into literary and illustration magic. He talked about how it’s important to be positive and kind and PRACTICE so you can be the best you can. The kids were elated. I don’t see how it could’ve gone better.
