Great Line-Up at Bank Street Book Store on Saturday, November 19

Words and pictures are the perfect partnership as two special guests at Bank Street Book Store can attest. Artist/author Hervé Tullet and magazine founder/publisher Joanne Chan meet up on Saturday, November 19 at 1:00 p.m. to talk about children's books -- how they are created and the impact they have on young lives. Hervé's work includes books like "Press Here" and "Mix It Up." Joanne's ILLUSTORIA magazine is filled with stories and articles featuring Hervé and other talented writers and illustrators. Come join us for a fun afternoon of listening to and talking about our favorite subject: books!
