Transcripts of full meetings of the council.

Hello. Good morning. I want to say thank you to Councilwoman Brown and Councilwoman Blackwell, Councilperson Jones, Councilman Jones, and Kenyatta Johnson. Thank you very much, and all of the other members of City Council for sponsoring this fair.

As an illustrator, I generally don't have the opportunity to make a location specific. Usually if I'm illustrating something, I have to make a city general. I'm lucky that I was able to work with Kathleen and make this book specifically about Philadelphia and in particular West Philadelphia. So the perspective of the book is about a bunch of children in West Philadelphia who are just having a wonderful summertime in the City, and I'm so thankful for Kathleen for picking me and allowing me to do this book for her.

Thank you very much.
