Dragon Ball Food – Library Summer Tour

dragon ball food presentation kent district library summer tour derek padula

Join me for a presentation on Dragon Ball Food and character names, at the Kent District Library this summer!

I will be presenting my Dragon Ball Food panel at 5 library locations from June 7, to August 9, throughout the Grand Rapids, Michigan area.

The show is for teenagers and adults, with food samples provided, while supplies last. As you learn about the character’s names, you eat the food they are named after!

Description: Discover the fun and exciting food-based names of Dragon Ball, the world’s most-recognized Japanese cartoon and comic. Dragon Ball Scholar and local East Grand Rapids author Derek Padula will entertain with the silly and easy-to-understand names of Dragon Ball’s main characters, places, and things. Learn about Eastern and Western culture, food, and language.

I’ll be selling and signing my books in paperback and hardback.

Great chance to meet me and talk Dragon Ball.

See you there!
