"Monsters Beware" Author Jorge Aguirre Reads without Walls at Bank Street Bookstore on Earth Day, April 22

Children are true citizens of the planet because every day they learn about how to get along in the world. That's why Bank Street Bookstore is taking an approach to Earth Day 2018 that includes consideration of the planet as well as its people. We are proud to participate in Macmillan Publishing's READING WITHOUT WALLS program by presenting author Jorge Aguirre as a special guest. On Sunday, April 22 at 10:30 a.m. Jorge will share his book "Monsters Beware!," challenging young readers to choose books featuring characters who might see, feel, or think differently than they do. Jorge will read and talk about the themes of difference and diversity (also featured in his books "Dragons Beware!" and "Giants Beware!") that kids enjoy encountering on the written page. Join us at 2780 Broadway to kick off an engaging and thoughtful Earth Day.
