Kites for The Kite Runner

"I went for a walk along Spreckels Lake on the northern edge of Golden Gate Park. 
The early-afternoon sun sparkled on the water where dozens of miniature boats sailed, propelled by a crisp breeze. 
Then I glanced up and saw a pair of kites, red with long blue tails, soaring in the sky. 
They danced high above the trees on the west end of the park, over the windmills, floating side by side like a pair of eyes looking down on San Francisco, the city I now call home."
                                                               -Opening page of The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini

I had the pleasure of creating the table signs for a gala
benefitting a local library foundation.
The guest speaker was Khaled Housseini, the author of The Kite Runner.

The kite inspired signs were
a special nod to his touching and memorable book...

a beautiful evening for a spectacular cause
