Actress, Producer, and Author, Garcelle Beauvais hosted a live book reading and signing at WeVillage Flexible Childcare in Sherman Oaks. Garcelle read her book “I Am Awesome” from her I Am… series and interacted with guests and their children.
The book aims to teach children about important topics like diversity with the message that they are all “awesome” regardless of what they like! The event allowed attendees to meet Garcelle, hear the story of why she created the I Am… book series, inspired by her sons who are mixed race and didn’t see characters that looked like them in media.
Guests included Ali Landry; Actress, Linsey Godfrey; Shahs of Sunset, Leila Gharache; Actor, Benjamin Akili Patterson; Child Influencer, Kheri Rogers; Child Model, William Artope; Child Model/Actors, Hunter & Easton Von Der Lieth; Child Model/Actor, Grae Carter and more. Attendees were able to enjoy the reading, food/drinks provided by sponsors- Brew Dr. Kombucha; Made Good; Sprout Organic Foods; and Plum Organics– and enjoy free play in the amazing 3,000 sqft space of WeVillage.
