Come and Celebrate!

Join Chemers Gallery Wednesday, December 8th, as we welcome Dr. James Doti, president of Chapman University and illustrator, Lisa Mertins to celebrate the recent release of their children's book, A Christmas Adventure in Little Italy! For one night only, Dr. Doti and Ms. Mertins will be meeting and greeting their fans and signing their book, which is Dr. Doti's first foray into the world of children's authorship. Based on his memories of visiting his Nonna in Chicago's Little Italy and helping to bake biscotti, this heartwarming tale is sure to bring smiles to readers everywhere.

Lisa Mertins' adorable illustrations are a rich companion to "Little Jimmy's" story. Filled with texture and color, Lisa's artwork seamlessly weaves together with Dr. Doti's verse to capture the magic of childhood.

This event benefits the Kathleen Muth Reading Center, a literacy program developed by Chapman University to aid children in their struggle to read. The program offers one-on-one tutoring sessions and involve the families and teachers of the struggling student so a custom program of learning can be mapped out for the individual. Tutors are MA students at Chapman's College of educational studies and are overseen by leading professionals in the field of literacy.
