Jasmine Toguchi at the L.A. Zoo!

Oh what a fabulous event at the Los Angeles Zoo! Many thanks to Robin Savoian, Associate Director Development, Safari Society for coordinating a truly spectacular morning. Thanks also to the staff, keepers (particularly senior keeper, Rose Legato), volunteers, and all the people who came out for the event!

The morning started off with a delicious breakfast as those who RSVP’d for this special donor and business partner event started trickling in. Docents arrived with education animals. Robin greeted and thanked everyone for being there, and then I read from Jasmine Toguchi Flamingo Keeper, and answered questions. Guests had the opportunity to do a craft, adopt animals at the zoo, and feed the flamingos, while I signed copies of Jasmine Toguchi Flamingo Keeper. I loved meeting readers, fans, new friends, and appreciated all my friends and family who showed up! The highlight was getting to feed the flamingos (all named after Harry Potter characters) IN the exhibit and I was able to bring my mom and daughter in with me! I think my face says it all
