Tom Chapin Live in Concert!

Raise your voices and lift your hearts at Bank Street Bookstore on Sunday, February 18 at 2:00 p.m. when three-time Grammy winner Tom Chapin performs in person! Tom is joined by friend and bassist extraordinaire actor/musician Michael Mark to present longtime favorite tunes together. Tom's songs are a joy to sing and hear, especially when in the company of others in the crowd who know and love his music for kids and families. We are told Tom is sure to include "Library Book" and "Backwards Birthday Party" in his playlist, then sign copies of these two terrific titles based on his original songs. Join us as we celebrate three great years at our store location at 2780 Broadway. (If possible, please leave strollers at home to create more space for Tom's many fans.)
