Come see this amazing mobile exhibition of miniature books housed inside a 1965 Covered Wagon travel trailer named Maude, curated by The Creativity Caravan. The Tiny Book Show features hundreds of handmade books, each measuring no more than 3 inches, made by artists of all ages from all over the world. Poets and educators Maya Stein and Amy Tingle, founders of the Creativity Caravan, will be offering a unique hands-on book-making workshop as part of the summer-long cross country tour, with an exhibit stop in Alameda. Guests of all ages are encouraged to attend. The trailer will be in the parking lot at Main and a book making workshop will be in the Stafford Community Room.
