Warholapalooza: Family Day @The Smithsonian, Washington DC - Among numerous other events, James Warhola reads from his children's book Uncle Andy's: A Faabbbulous Visit with Andy Warhol @National Portrait Gallery - Saturday, 20 June 2009 (link)

You can read a review of the book here (paired with a review of Claire Hatfield's children's book Me and Uncle Romie inspired by the artist Romare Bearden) (link)

According to Audrey Regan:

James Warhola, more than anyone, can create the most frightening creatures and have them appear completely non-threatening and ultimately cool. The aliens he includes in his numerous paintings of bars are larger than life (or smaller than life) and they are portrayed by Warhola as fun seekers. James is also an illustrator and author of children's books. His most recent offering is "Uncle Andy's" which draws on James' childhood memories of visiting Andy Warhol at his home in New York city. The book is published by Putnam and is available in bookstores everywhere. (pic/link)
