Super Stephen Savage, Author/Illustrator of "Super Truck"

As Bank Street Bookstore eases into its third year at 2780 Broadway, who better than author/illustrator Stephen Savage to help celebrate New York City's premier independent bookstore for children? Stephen's books for kids include "Super Truck," "Mixed-Up Truck," "Little Tug," "Little Plane Learns to Write," and "Where's Walrus" -- each one a mini-masterpiece of how much fun reading can be. There's creativity, color, and comedy on each page. Laugh and learn when Stephen joins us Saturday, February 17 for story time at 10:30 a.m. Stephen will read, sign, and even treat kids to a drawing demo.
