We are living in extraordinary times, facing challenges that are historic. Everyone at Narrated Objects is so grateful that we have a community and creativity to turn to get through it—and power us through 2021. Thank you for your ongoing support of our small business by purchasing our books or attending our virtual events. Thank you also to all the artists and organizations we collaborate with and the retailers that carry our books. We are hoping the year ahead is filled with justice, love, and good health for all!

SUNDAY WORKSHOP WITH YUCA'S

In partnership with Mastercard and LA Original, we’ve been running virtual workshops! These experiences have included learning how to draw cute animals with Narrated Objects contributor Oscar Rosales and a writing in nature class led by Andrea. Our final workshop is going to be a super special event—a virtual visit to Dora Herrera’s family kitchen, where she and her mama will teach us a breakfast dish and talk about family recipes. Dora is the James Beard Award–winning chef of Yuca's Kitchens and a dear friend.

During the workshop, we will also share creative ways you can preserve precious family recipes through a recipe card, collage, or food zine. With your reservation, you’ll get a promo code that can be redeemed for a 15% discount on your next purchase from the 
Narrated Objects’ online store. Exclusively for Mastercard cardholders.

ANNOUNCING OUR NEW BOOK!

L.A.’s public parks have been a lifeline for us during the pandemic, and we’ve long wanted to do a book about these vital outdoor resources as places for exploration, celebration, education, recreation, and activism. We asked Angelenos to share original artwork of the parks that mattered most to them. The result is We Heart L.A. Parks, which celebrates these beloved places by featuring more than 50 public parks within the city of Los Angeles with amazing illustrations, personal stories, and fun activities, including two colorful fold-outs: an L.A. parks map and an L.A. Park Adventures board game. It is a coloring and activity book for all ages by contributors of all ages.
 

The book will be released at the end of February, but you can reserve your copy now. The cover line art is of Everett Triangle Park by Jennifer Cuellar, who also contributed to our We Heart P-22 book, and colored by our art director and cover designer Miriam Blier. Visit the parks featured in the book in person using our We Heart L.A. Parks map

A percentage of profits from the book will be donated to the Los Angeles Neighborhood Land Trust, whose work contributes to the well-being of our neighborhoods through improving access and equity to public parks.

ACTIVITIES TO ENJOY AT HOME
We had so much fun drawing with Oscar in our first Priceless workshop for Mastercard and LA Original earlier this month. We heard from parents that their kids have been drawing nonstop since attending! Download Oscar's drawing tutorial for his adorable raccoon here to try at home! We also have many P-22 coloring pages and drawing worksheets to enjoy as well: take your pick.

If there are particular virtual art and writing workshops you'd love to see in the future, contact us with your suggestions. We'd love to hear from you. And we appreciate you sharing our newsletter with park, book, and art lovers alike!
