Pennez is excited to announce that Pennez will host our first storytelling event at the Google Fiber Lounge on September 21, 2016. Eight artists from all walks of life will share personal stories from 2016. This exciting event will bring together many individuals from different cultures and generations so the community can learn more about artists within the community at the Google Fiber Event Lounge. These spectacular artists will present a cross cultural and cross generational experience to the community. They will connect with the audience through stories of love, frustration, discovery, encouragement, and more.
Pennez was founded to bring more awareness and equity to writers, illustrators, and storytellers of color and to connect these artists to schools so children will see the value in their literacy education.
The proceeds from this event will help Pennez create future educational programs so literary artists can work with children in the classroom. This event is open to individuals 21 years of age and older.
