Award-winning children’s book author Matt de la Peña ’96 loves to read to children and recently held a special live reading session for “tiny tigers.”

“I love UOP and the community, and I figure since so many of us are stuck at home now, I thought maybe you could all use a story time,” he said to start the video.

De la Peña, who graduated from Pacific with a bachelor of arts degree in English, read his 2016 Newbery Award-winning book “Last Stop on Market Street.”

If you missed the live stream, you can watch the video of de la Peña’s story time on the Pacific Alumni Association’s Facebook page.
