Hervé Tullet Mixes It Up with School Kids at S.F. Main Library

Author and Paris-based artist Hervé Tullet, creator of The New York Times bestseller and international sensation Press Here, will lead local school kids in a creative collaboration on a giant mural, exploring color, shape and paint in the spirit of his eagerly-anticipated new book, Mix it Up. This event will be held outdoors at the San Francisco Main Library on Fulton Street, between Hyde and Larkin, on Oct. 14 at 10 a.m.

Known as “the prince of preschool” in his native France, Hervé has published more than 60 books in over 25 languages for kids of all ages that encourage them to explore their creativity. His 2011 title Press Here, published by Chronicle Books, received starred reviews by Kirkus Review, Publishers Weekly, and School Library Journal, sold over one million copies worldwide, and has been on the New York Times Bestseller list since publication.

Hervé Tullet’s latest book, Mix It Up, was published in 2014, and is available through Chronicle Books, as well as bookstores and libraries.

His art workshops have been held at the Tate in London and in New York’s Guggenheim. A former advertising art director, Hervé is traveling the world from Malawi to Tokyo to Jerusalem to Brooklyn giving readings and art workshops.

San Francisco Public Library is honored to have been selected by Hervé and Chronicle Books to host his international painting party on Oct. 14 at the Main Library.
