Saturday Story Time in English and Spanish

Greet the new day with a meditation session courtesy of yoga teacher Motha Nature, who assists children (and grownups) with mindful poses and practices. Her morning greeting helps us welcome author Thornton Cline to Bank Street Book Store for an English/Spanish reading of his book "The Incredible Shrinking Violin" (also known as "El increible, sorprendente violin que se encogia"). The Spanish version will be read by the book's translator Mary Escalante. Both the yoga and the reading are wonderful ways to start the holiday weekend and we hope you join us on Saturday, May 27 at 10:30 a.m. at 2780 Broadway at the corner of West 107th Street. This event is for all ages.

Graphic Novel Version of "Litte Mermaid"

A classic story is one that can be reworked and retold through the ages to remain a forever favorite. The latest version of "The Little Mermaid" by Metaphrog is a perfect example of how to rethink the Hans Christian Andersen original as a graphic novel. Artists John Chalmers and Sandra Marrs conceived this adaptation and brought it to life through words and images that tell the story in fantastic new ways. See this new version -- full of the familiar and the new -- at Bank Street Book Store on Sunday, May 21 at 2:00 p.m.

Singing (and Marching!) with Laurie Berkner

Event date: 
Saturday, May 20, 2017 - 10:30am to 11:30am

On Saturday, May 20 at 10:30 a.m., Bank Street Book Store is pleased and proud to welcome musician/author Laurie Berkner! Laurie's new book, "We Are the Dinosaurs," based on her song of the same name, marches into the store with a live performance and book signing. In the past, Laurie worked as a children's music specialist, providing a perfect background for her career as a performer whose songs really connect with kids. She writes music and lyrics that people of all ages love hearing (and singing) again and again. Now that one of the favorite songs in Laurie's repertoire is a book, families have wonderful chance to read and sing together every time they open the book. Join us on May 20 for a musical treat.
